The project “European Technology and Innovation Platform Support of Renewable Fuels and Advanced Bioenergy Stakeholders” 2 (ETIP-B-SABS 2) is funded through the European Research and Innovation Programme Horizon 2020 under Grant Agreement No 825179. The project duration is three years (September 2018 to August 2021).
ETIP-B-SABS 2 will support and empower renewable fuel and bioenergy stakeholders’ contributions to the Energy Union and, more specifically, the Strategic Energy Technology (SET)-Plan. The European Technology and Innovation Platform Bioenergy aims to actively engage with these stakeholders and link their needs to policy making of the European Commission, and the project´s objective is to support ETIP-Bioenergy in this task. Specific objectives are to facilitate the following activities of ETIP-Bioenergy:
Building on a 12 years track of support to the European Biofuels and Technology Platform (EBTP) and the ETIP Bioenergy, the project will aim at an increased cohesion of bioenergy and renewable fuels stakeholders by motivating discussion and interaction on hot topics related to advanced and innovative bioenergy. Key instruments to achieve this aim will be the ETIP Bioenergy website, factsheets, reports, newsletters and networking events at different scales. The project will compile scientifically sound, fact based information on technical and non-technical bioenergy/renewable fuel issues.
The consortium consists of 5 partners from 4 countries. The Agency for Renewable Resources (FNR) is responsible for the overall coordination of the project. Further project partners are: Bioenergy 2020+ from Austria, ETA Florence Renewable Energy from Italy, INZE Iniziativa Centro Europea from Italy and RISE Innventia AB from Sweden.
