In this joint call, ERA-NET Bioenergy and BESTF3 aim to fund innovative, transnational research, development and innovation (R&D&I) projects in the field of bioenergy.
Funding will be offered to excellent proposals that provide clear added value through cooperation of partners in at least two (preferably more) participating countries. Novelty beyond the state of the art in the bioenergy value chain addressed must be significant, and evidence of exploitation potential must be provided (e.g. by way of tangible industry commitment).
Public funding is available for this joint call from funding bodies in Austria, Finland, Germany, The Netherlands, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland.
The call “Combined biomass valorisation to bioenergy, industrial feedstock and bio-based products” aims to support innovative, collaborative pan-European, R&D&I projects. Projects should contribute to safe, environmentally friendly, reliable and economical bioenergy production in combination with the sustainable production of industrial feedstock (e.g. lipids, waxes, proteins, lignin, gaseous compounds etc.) or bio-based products (bioplastics, insulation materials, etc.) with significant market potential. The projects can focus on parts of the bioenergy value chains, however always including conversion technologies, and must address at least one of the following topics:
For some countries added value in rural areas is of particular interest – see national annexes!
The German national funding will be legally and financially based on parts of BMEL’s R&D programme “Förderprogramm Nachwachsende Rohstoffe FPNR” with possible funding via this call in 2 core areas:
Procedure for german applicants:
Funding quota of German participants can be up to 100 % for universities or research organisations. In the case of companies, funding quota will be decided on a case-by-case basis depending on the size of the company, type of research/development, risk associated with the research activities, commercial perspective of exploitation, typically up to max. 50%. In this case, overhead costs can be considered for companies. In case of small and medium enterprises, an additional bonus of 10-20 % funding quota can be awarded. There is no obligation regarding the number of companies to be involved from Germany, but company participation is recommended in order to ensure exploitation of results.
Deadline for submission of pre-proposals: 29.01.2019, 13:00 CET.
The deadline for submitting full proposals is 18th June 2019, 13:00 CEST.
