InnProBio presented at an event on renewable raw-materials in procurement
At the beginning of this month, the InnProBio project was introduced to the audience attending the event “Nachwachsende Rohstoffe im Einkauf” in Berlin. The focus of it was on renewable raw materials in procurement.
In his presentation, Martin Behrens, from FNR - one of the partners in the InnProBio constortium – talked about the barriers of public procurement of bio-based products and services, and promoted the overall aims of the project. Behrens also presented an overview of the different tools and resources produced during the first half of InnProBio, such as the factsheets. Attendees could also learn about the market dialogues and workshops organised by the project to trigger the interest of practitioners in bio-based innovation.
The “Bio-Based Products Database for Public Procurement”, developed as part of the EU-funded project Open-Bio will be integrated in the InnProBio website as an additional tool. This database provides information about bio-based end-products relevant for public procurement. Behrens gave details about this database and its shift to InnProBio.eu.
