A dedicated workshop/brokerage event on project generation in the field of bioenergy is organised by SINTEF and the Research Council of Norway, in cooperation with a cross-fertilized team represented by multispectral Norwegian and European actors.
The aim of this event is to generate and develop projects responding to the bioenergy challenges addressed by the Horizon 2020 framework programme for the time frame 2018-2019, by connecting industry, the scientific community, and the public sector. It will provide a unique opportunity to make new contacts, establish new partnerships and develop projects in a multisector approach.
This event targets a wide spectrum of participants with complementary skills, both in terms of expertise as well as project roles (from project participants to project coordinators, via project idea owners). It targets the following groups:
- Norwegian bioenergy community
- European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) JP Bioenergy
- European Technology and Innovation Platform (ETIP) Bioenergy
- European Regions Research and Innovation Network (ERRIN)
WHAT & HOW
The workshop/brokerage event is planned as a full-day event, focusing on relevant bioenergy topics addressing stationary bioenergy (heating, power, and cooling), bioenergy carriers and biofuels. Detailed information of the calls is available here.
After an initial presentation of the relevant calls, there will be parallel working group sessions focusing on distinct calls, with the participation of National Contact Points for H2020 Energy to support and advice during the discussions.
In order to make the workshop efficient, structured and successful, the participants will be invited to provide an outline of their project ideas/expertise and/or challenges prior to the event.
WHERE & WHEN
The event will be held in Brussels on 13 September 13 (Venue tbd). The deadline for registration is 21 August and deadline for submission of project ideas/expertise is 30August.
The event is free of charge, registration mandatory! Online registration on this page.
Please note that due to the size of the meeting room, registrations will be accepted on a «first come-first served» basis (~40).
