GBO: European Biobased Knowledge Network

GBO: European Biobased Knowledge Network

The Interreg Vlaanderen-Nederland supported project Grenzeloos Biobased Onderwijs – GBO (Boundless Biobased Education) developed demand-driven bio-based education programmes at secondary, higher and university level and on worked on better training and research facilities for education and business.

But how will the market demand look like, now and in the future? And what competences does the bio-based professional of tomorrow need? Starting from roadmaps for promising sectors such as agriculture and horticulture, non-food, chemistry and biotechnology, (clean) technology and materials and working together with experts and the business community the GBO project looked for answers on these questions.

Key project outcomes are presented in various -closely connected- formats including: 1. the online book of results, 2. the digital platform European Biobased Knowledge Network, 3. a market survey on competencies of young professional who will help shape and develop the future bio-based economy and 4. a survey of training and research facilities and an inventory of existing and needed training and research facilities.

The GBO project developed the European Biobased Knowledge Network, a digital platform that brings together Dutch and Flemish education and business actors in the field of bio-based economy. This platform for knowledge sharing and dissemination offers information on a range of bio-based economy topics including: course modules, experts, facilities, internships, and events.

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.
