Pilots4U Final Event: Fast Forward the European Bio-economy – Conference Report

Pilots4U Final Event: Fast Forward the European Bio-economy – Conference Report

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’ 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’

Biobridges’ value chain collaboration challenges model

Biobridges’ value chain collaboration challenges model

Biobridges developed the “Value chain collaboration challenges model” aiming to visualise the identified challenges, which are framed based on:

1. Challenges inside the value chain (Feedstock suppliers > Industry & Clusters > Market > Consumers) and outside the value chain (supporting environment), which is also essential to support the bio-based market, composed by:

  • Research: providing innovative solutions
  • Policy: providing supportive legislation and incentives

2. Challenges between certain stakeholders in the value chain “problem owners”.

3. Stakeholders to be involved in addressing the challenge “potential collaborators”.

The aim of the model is to offer a practical ‘tool’ that can be used during the co-creation workshops to provide a conceptual mapping of the discussion, enabling an easy-to-see visualisation of the challenges, and at the same time, to narrow the discussion on certain challenges based on the scope of each workshop.
