BERST database of instruments & measures facilitating bioeconomy development in regions

BERST database of instruments & measures facilitating bioeconomy development in regions

The aim of the BERST project was to gain understanding of the possibilities and challenges related to the enhancement of bio-based economies. BERST outcomes are accessible through two catalogues, hosted by VITO and by WUR respectively. The catalogues can be useful for a wide variety of stakeholders, from regional policy makers over local entrepreneurs to profit and non-profit organisations.

 The BERST database (catalogue) @ VITO provides detailed information on instruments and measures facilitating bioeconomy development in regions throughout Europe.  For each instrument & measure information is provided on:

  • A set of descriptive Criteria such as; the targeted region(s), the goal, a short description, contact information, the sector targeted,…
  • To which extent the Instrument & Measures helps realising (one or more of) the objectives relevant for the deployment of a regional bioeconomy.

In addition, the catalogue contains:

  • Case studies providing in-depth regional bioeconomy profiles for seven BERST regions
  • Four good practice examples of regions containing one or more successful bioeconomy clusters. 
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’

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 Database sets out to map all existing open access pilot and demo-infrastructures across Europe, with the aim of creating one, very visible and easily accessible network for the European bio-economy. It includes the following 10 technological bioeconomy disciplines: algae cultivation and harvesting, anaerobic digestion, chemical processing, industrial biotechnology, material technologies, mechanical separations, physicochemical separations, pre-treatment, pulping, thermochemical conversion.
