Recently the EU-Interreg project BioBIGG published its first project brochure. The focus of the project lies on mobilising the potential for innovation in the material or energetic use of renewable raw materials. The project focuses on biogenic residues and co-products as well as the products from cascade utilisation, which have great potential in the South Baltic Region. Countries, which are in the focus of BioBIGG are Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Poland and Lithuania.
You can find the brochure here.
We also would like to welcome you in our South Baltic Bioeconomy Network on LinkedIn → https://www.linkedin.com/groups/13654293/
Via the LinkedIn group, which at the moment represents the South Baltic Bioeconomy Network (SBBN), project results, events, conferences, etc. can be advertised. Primarily though, the LinkedIn page will facilitate the finding of new potential partners — including other universities or research institutions, and businesses — thus giving a valuable tool to researchers seeking collaboration on or support with a project relating to the bioeconomy.
Through the SBBN, SMEs will be able to get in contact with other similar SMEs for the purpose of collaboration or partnership, thus potentially giving a leg up to the SBA bioeconomy sector over non-bio-based competing SMEs. Furthermore, SMEs will also be able to get in touch with research institutions and universities to learn of potential new business options (by way of being up-to-date on the newest technologies and findings in SBA bioeconomy), and will also be able to find potential new employees from partnered universities.
By doing all that we aim at a higher rate of communication to push the development of a sustainable bioeconomy in the South Baltic area and the Baltic Area in general.
Bioeconomy in the South Baltic area:
This Group will serve as an information hub on bioeconomy in the South Baltic area and beyond. It belongs to the Interreg project BioBIGG, which aims at identifying and developing attractive business opportunities for SMEs within the Bioeconomy and paving the way for a sustainable and circular bioeconomy.
This will be achieved through cross-border knowledge transfer, advisory activities and preparation of specific proposals for production of biomass-based products and services based on regional available biomass, hereby hopefully strengthening the innovation capacity of SMEs and mobilising investments and implementation of technology in the South Baltic area.
The project will host several cross-border events where SMEs and other stakeholders (policy and decision makers and others) can meet to share new insights and solutions for innovative products, processes and business opportunities within the bioeconomy.
BioBIGG project partners:
Roskilde University, RISE (Research Institute of Sweden), Gdańsk University of Technology, University of Greifswald, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and Agency for Renewable Resources
