What our CEOs say

Funding from the BBI JU is crucial in order to turn research into innovation and deployment in Europe, to de-risk investments and thus to develop a competitive European bioeconomy.

The Biobased Industries Consortium (BIC), the private partner within BBI JU, brings together different industrial sectors needed to develop innovative value chains. BBI JU projects are mobilising the relevant stakeholders, ranging from SMEs to large companies, from resource & technology providers to brand owners, and public centers of excellence.

CEOs of BIC companies are voicing their views on the importance of the BBI Initiative for Europe’s bioeconomy.

For these reasons, BIC calls for a continued partnership with the European Commission under the new EU Research & Innovation Framework programme (FP9).
