The BioBase4SME network, representing many leading bio-based economy experts, will advise SMEs from across North-West Europe on how to develop new ideas into marketable products. The BioBase4SME project intends to help Start-ups and SME to overcome technological and non-technological barriers to bring their innovation to market. The project is based on three pillars:
- Free workshops and professional training (see ‘events’)
- Innovation Biocamps (see ‘events’)
- Innovation vouchers worth up to €100.000.
The support offered through the voucher system can consist of:
- Technical assistance such as scale-up to pilot scale
- Life Cycle Assessment
- Techno-economic evaluation
- Market research
- Feedstock analysis
- Social acceptance
- Business planning and business plan support
or a combination thereof.
Partners involved are AC3A (France), Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (Belgium), CLIB2021 (Germany), Ghent Bio-Economy Valley (Belgium), Materia Nova (Belgium), NNFCC (UK), REWIN (NL), TCBB Resource (Ireland).
In the biobased economy lays a big opportunity for Europe. Locally produced biobased feedstocks rather than imported fossil resources are used to produce materials, chemicals, energy… creating a new knowledge and technology intensive economy with high employment potential and with reduced environmental impact.
