Based on a workshop held on 28 June 2005, this publication presents an overview of the impact of recent EU-funded research in the field of renewable biological materials for non-food use. Hosted by the European Commission's Research Directorate General, this workshop was the follow up to a technical review of 31 'non-food' research projects funded under the thematic priority 'Quality of life and management of living resources' in the Fifth Framework Programme. The workshop considered the technical review of all 31 projects together with separate, specific presentations from eight pre-selected projects. The objective of the meeting was first to identify future needs in the non-food research sector, with the preparation of input for the Seventh Framework Programme, and secondly to provide clear recommendations for emerging technologies, best crops and waste streams to invest in and on the way non-technical barriers can be overcome.
