The research projects with an entire funding volume of ca. 31 M€ and duration of 36 months started in 2018 and will contribute to transforming the global economy from a dependence on fossil raw materials to a sustainable bio-based economy. The speakers will present their innovative interdisciplinary approaches for the development of sustainable processes for conversion of different feedstock and bioresources, creation of new biobased products and improvement of existing industrial processes in terms of their sustainability.

On 13 June 2018 (6 – 8 p.m.) ERA CoBioTech will organize a networking reception in the foyer in front of the plenary hall, “Conclusio 2” (CMF). The reception will provide an opportunity to speakers of the kick-off session, funders from ERA CoBioTech, representatives of research projects funded by other initiatives (e.g. SPIRE, BBI), representatives of companies operating in the domain bio-economy and guests to discuss and exchange information and will serve as a platform for networking and matchmaking.
