Pilots4U aimed to set up a network of open access pilot and multipurpose demo-infrastructures for the European bio-economy. Access to such open access infrastructures are the most cost-effective manner to support the deployment of industry-driven innovations in the bio-economy market.
The Pilots4U final event ‘Pilots4U Final Event: Fast Forward the European Bio-economy’ was held on 25 June 2019 in Brussels. The aim of the final event was on the one hand to demonstrate the Pilots4U database of open access pilot and demonstration infrastructures and how the Pilots4U network will continue. Another aim was to communicate the project’s policy recommendations resulting from an analysis of available and missing scale-up and demonstration infrastructures in Europe.
The Pilots4U final event was organised in collaboration with other initiatives with similar or overlapping aims and recommendations, namely the SmartPilots and ERIFORE networks, the Vanguard Initiative, the Interregional Partnership for Bioeconomy, and Interreg ‘Component 5’
