EU support for bioenergy demonstration projects: current state and developments

Contributed by: ETA-Florence Renewable Energies

From 2016-06-06 to 2016-06-06, Netherlands
The EU supports R&I in bioenergy and advanced biofuels and is currently funding bioenergy projects at pre-commercial and demonstration scale through various instruments such as NER 300, the BESTF ERANET programme under the frame of the European Industrial Bioenergy Initiative (EIBI), and the EU framework programmes for Research & Innovation (FP7, H2020).
The session will provide an overview of the current state and developments of projects currently ongoing under the different funding instruments. Experiences from projects will be shared with the audience and a panel will discuss challenges and opportunities identified.

The expected target audience is the European bioenergy technology stakeholders from industry, research, government, NGO and other interest groups and associations along the whole bioenergy research and innovation chain.

The programme of the session will include an introduction to the funding programmes, followed by presentations from two selected projects funded by the NER 300 programme and two funded under EIBI. In addition, other ongoing activities in the field (e.g. the European Flightpath Initiative) will be presented. A short panel discussion in the form of a round table will complete the session.
