The Bio-based Industries (BBI) Joint Undertaking (JU) is responsible for the implementation of open call for proposals for research and innovation actions and innovation actions, as well as coordination and support actions, in line with the Horizon 2020 rules for participation.
BBI JU Calls are open to private for-profit and not-for-profit organisations, including large enterprises as well as SMEs, Research and Technology Organisations, universities, associations, or any legal entity interested in BBI activities.
A new Call for proposals will be opened soon. Publication of this Call will be on 11 April 2018, and closure is on 6 September 2018, 17:00 CET. More information can be found here.
