„This year we are launching the seventh and last Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking BBI JU call for proposals under the Horizon 2020 programme. What a great journey it has been. Since our first call in 2014, the BBI JU portfolio has grown to 101 projects with nearly 1,200 beneficiaries to almost 1,500 from 36 countries and total funding of € 600 million. By mid-2020, another 23 projects from the 2019 Call will join in, raising the number of beneficiaries to almost 1,500 and the number of countries to 37.“

„This year’s call will continue in the same direction. With an indicative budget of €102 million, our 2020 Call will cover 16 topics in four strategic orientations: feedstock, process, products, and market uptake. I invite you to apply for this opportunity and join our community of beneficiaries who are working together to build a bio-based sector that is putting Europe back on the map of attractive areas for investment in bio-based industries.“
