BlueBio ERA-NET Additional Call Presentation and Brokerage Event
Advancing the supply systems in the blue bioeconomy value chains
The BlueBio ERA-NET Additional Call Presentation and Brokerage Event is a two-part event where the BlueBio Cofund will present the first additional call on 18 June and facilitate 1:1 match-making meetings between possible partners on 25 June. Registration for the brokerage event on b2match opens Wednesday 10 June. The presentation on 18 June will be hosted on Zoom and the 1:1 meetings on 25 June will be on b2match. After 25 June a permanent matchmaking session is open on the site, so meetings can be organised until 13 September.
The call is targeted on supply systems in the blue bioeconomy: logistics and transportation - from harvest to processing.
The scope of the call is to fund projects that facilitate the transfer (i.e. logistics, preservation and transportation) of bio-resources from harvest (catch or production) to processing to ensure e.g. traceability, quality, sustainability and the necessary quantity or pre-processing of the bio-resources for conversion into products for the market. This entails also the supply systems to primary producers for aspects affecting the bio-resources as it moves further in the value chain.
Participation in the call
14 funding organisations from 13 countries are involved in this call. The total available budget is approx. 11 million €.. The following partner countries will provide funds: Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Malta, Norway, Portugal (Azores), Romania and Spain. All projects are open to partners from all counties, as far as they bring their own funds.
