BBI JU Call for proposals 2017 open
The BBI JU* Call for proposals 2017 opened on 11 April 2017. The 2017 call is the fourth in a total of seven calls between 2014 and 2020. It has 4 strategic orientations: Feedstock, Process, Products, and Market uptake. The topic texts can be found in the Annual Work Plan 2017. As initiated in the Annual Work Plan (AWP) 2016, the AWP 2017 moves away from a strict biomass feedstock ‘push’ based on the traditional value chains, towards a demand for biomass to enable processing to respond adequately to a ‘pull’ from the end markets.
The call closes on 7 September 2017.
