Increasing impact from publicly funded research - Lessons from the bioeconomy
ProBIO will be in the European Parliament on 28 June to discuss how to increase impact from publicly funded research, in a Dinner Debate hosted by Lieve Wierinck MEP, member of the Industry, Research and Energy Committee, and shadow rapporteur on the European Parliament’s assessment of the implementation of Horizon 2020.
This event will give you the opportunity to debate the barriers to achieving impact from research results, the most appropriate ways to support result commercialisation, and the necessary features of the Horizon 2020 follow-up programme.
2nd International Bioeconomy Congress
The Congress aims at being an interdisciplinary expert and stakeholder meeting dedicated to systemic approaches of bioeconomy. The goal of the conference will be to discuss innovative products, processes and regional concepts that use biomass instead of fossil resources and contribute to both climate goals and global food security. These include technological innovations as well as careful evaluations of environmental, climate and societal impacts. Basic research will be covered in addition to implementation strategies for markets and society in order to develop future bioeconomy scenarios.

Bio!CAR conference 2017
After two years, the second edition of bio!CAR is now scheduled for Sept. 20/21, 2017 (subject to changes). The conference will again be held in Stuttgart, Germany, parallel to Composites Europe.
The theme of the bio!CAR conference aimed to reflect the trend towards the increasing use of bio-based polymers and natural fibres in the automotive industry: more and more manufacturers and suppliers are betting on bio-based alternatives derived from renewable raw materials such as wood, flax, jute, sisal, cotton or coir, used as reinforcement materials, as well as reinforced or unreinforced, but bio-based thermoplastics, thermoset or chemical building blocks.
