The first newsletter of the SET4BIO project, was distributed to its subscribers at the beginning of November. Primarily, this edition informs the readers about the one-year SET4BIO Innovation Challenge where innovators are invited to participate with their ideas to stimulate increased production and use of bioenergy and renewable fuels. To selected innovators, the SET4BIO Innovation Challenge will provide the following major opportunities:

  • Engaging innovators in developing innovative proposals for solutions that stimulate and increase the possibility of producing and using bioenergy and renewable fuels by also implementing the EU Green Deal Vision.
  • Accelerating the development of their solution via 5 virtual events
  • Assessing the solution with a final demonstration day
  • Matching innovators with innovative solutions with potential funding opportunities.

The SET4BIO project is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 884524

The overall objective of the project SET4BIO is to support the full execution of the Implementation Plan of Action 8, Bioenergy and Renewable Fuels for Sustainable Transport (IP8) of the SET-Plan.

The project will promote best practices for development, demonstration and scale-up through a competition-based innovation approach, monitor development, develop a financing roadmap as well as provide policy recommendations and disseminate results.
