Funding opportunities for Bio-based Industries in 2019


The Office for the Promotion of the EU Framework Programme of the Portuguese Innovation Agency (ANI, Agência Nacional de Inovação), in partnership with the Portuguese Industrial Association (AIP, Associação Industrial Portuguesa) – Enterprise Europe Network (EEN-Portugal) organises an Info Session specifically dedicated to discuss the funding opportunities offered for the bio-based industries in 2019. This session is organised in the context of PERIN (Portugal in Europe Research and Innovation Network) and as a parallel event to the 27th European Biomass Conference & Exhibition (EUBCE 2019). It builds on the discussion held during the first session, “Bio-based products making the circular economy era a reality”, organised by the BBI JU office. This event targets all types of stakeholders along the bio-based value chains and is an excellent opportunity to explore networking opportunities.
