The overall objective of the BBU JU is to implement a program of research and innovation activities in Europe that will assess the availability of renewable biological resources that can be used for the production of bio-based materials, and on that basis, support the establishment of sustainable bio-based value chains. Those activities should be carried out through collaboration between stakeholders along the entire bio-based value chains, including primary production and processing industries, consumer brands, SMEs, research and technology centres and universities.

This objective should be achieved through the support of research and innovation activities, using resources from the public and private sectors. To this end, the BBI JU should organise 2019 call for proposals aimed at supporting research, demonstration and deployment activities.

The Call 2019 is currently open and the deadline for submission of proposals to the Call 2019 is 4 September 2019, 17:00 CET
