On March 16th 2017, Bio-Based Industries Joint Technology Initiative informative day was held at the BIOCenter on Borongaj, which brought together the representatives of academia, the real and the public sector. Head organizers of this event were the BIOCenter and the Agency for mobility and EU programs.
BBI JTI initiative operates under the auspices of the Horizon 2020, EU program for research and innovations, with the goal of making the European bio industry globally competitive, reducing its dependence on fossil based fuels and ultimately leading to sustainable and ecologically friendly growth.
Funding opportunities were presented in the framework of Joint Technology Initiative for the bio industry for 2017, as well as the benefits of engaging in the European bio industry network (Bio-based Industries Consortium, BIC).
The Mi-plast Company presented itself as an example of good practice by giving insight into their work and experience as a small and medium enterprise which has been successfully implementing projects within this finance instrument.
