Pilots4U Business cases for further investment in pilot/demo infrastructure

Pilots4U Business cases for further investment in pilot/demo infrastructure

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.

This document describes the three Pilots4U business cases for further investment in pilot/demo infrastructure and associated expertise that help maintaining the current momentum of key bio-based technologies as well as driving new developments. The business cases cover: (1) investment in new equipment, (2) investment in coordination actions, (3) investment in knowledge generation.

Pilots4U Policy Recommendations to strengthen the European landscape of open-access infrastructure

Pilots4U Policy Recommendations to strengthen the European landscape of open-access infrastructure

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.

Typically, large-scale innovation infrastructures have very high initial cost and then require further investment and maintenance costs to retain capability. Therefore, supporting innovation policies at a regional, as well as at a European level, is of utmost importance to safeguard the long-term existence of these innovation accelerators, to support the delivery of highly skilled jobs. This report with policy recommendations contains a set of key messages developed by the Pilots4U project with the aim to strengthen the European landscape of open-access infrastructure

Pilots4U Database of bioeconomy open access pilot and multipurpose demo facilities

Pilots4U Database of bioeconomy open access pilot and multipurpose demo facilities

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.
