Conference “Making more of Bioeconomy R&D Results”

Oct-06-15 to Oct-07-15
Brussels, Belgium

The interactive event “Making more of Bioeconomy R&D Results” provides an excellent opportunity for participants in FP7 bioeconomy consortia to present the expected results of their R&D projects to their peers. They can also meet and engage with exploitation experts ready to offer professional support to the uptake of bioeconomy R&D results towards market, further research and policy making.

The conference is divided by topics so participants can choose the day most relevant for them:

  • Tuesday 6th October: Agriculture and Fisheries
  • Wednesday 7th October: Food and Biotechnology

Participants have the following options to present depending on the nature and maturity of their project result(s):

  1. Result with market potential: Pitch your result/product and present your ideas on its potential in 5 minutes. Get feedback about your exploitation strategy.
  2. Result relevant to design or improve policy making: Present how your findings could inform policy making and engage in a debate on the best methodology for doing so.
  3. Further develop your concepts: Present your result that need further development and discuss with a group what kind of project and financing would help reach a higher TRL.

This innovative conference format addresses the challenges highlighted by the European Commission to get more impact from the R&D results coming out of EC-funded projects.

Registration is compulsory to ensure participation. Please register here no later than 10th September 2015.
