Objective

"ICT-BIOCHAIN brings leading experts and support networks to develop Digital Innovation Hubs within ready-made test bed bioeconomy regions to examine opportunities for ICT, IoT and Industry 4.0. to increase the efficiency of high potential value biomass supply chains. In 2016, the EU selected 6 ""model demonstrator regions"" to lead the way towards sustainable chemical production. Within ICT-BIOCHAIN, two of these high potential Model Demonstrator Regions, South East Ireland and Andalusia, will serve as test bed locations for the development of digital innovation hubs for biomass mobilisation. The competence centres will provide access within hubs to the best knowledge, information and technology to promote opportunities for ICT, IoT and Industry to be integrated into biomass supply chains. This will support the development of the EU bioeconomy by facilitating greater availability of competitively priced and sustainable biomass. ICT-BIOCHAIN will build on the work done in improving forestry biomass supply chains through integration of ICT tools, transferring state-of-the-art and new ICT, IoT and Industry 4.0 solution to region specific biomass supply chains. To ensure commercial opportunities are realised, project will build on ongoing regional bioeconomy developments and opportunities identified in existing Investment Readiness Analyses carried out for the Model Demonstrator Regions. To ensure consistency of regional biomass data sets, the ICT-CHAIN platform will build upon previous data sets tested within the Scottish Model Demonstrator Region. Once region-specific opportunities are identified, value chain coalitions of multi-actors will be developed through intensive knowledge transfer activities. Finally, the project will build networks with other bioeconomy regions, providing a roadmap and training to allow further replication of digital innovation hubs for the biobased sector in Europe."
