2020 BBI JU Call for proposals

The Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking recently published the 2020 BBI JU Call for proposals (deadline: 3 September 2020). With an indicative budget of €102 million, it covers 16 topics across four strategic orientations: feedstock, process, products, and market uptake. Please find a complete list of the calls at the bottom of the page.

The workshop is open to both ERRIN members and external partners. 

ERRIN's project facilitation process

One of ERRIN’s missions is to increase project opportunities for members by providing possibilities for networking to share project ideas, best practices, and personal contacts. You can find a full overview of the project facilitation process and tools here.

Many of the topics in the 2020 BBI JU call – bio-based products, (municipal) waste, food from aquatic sources, skills and circular economy – are in line with the interests of the Bioeconomy WG with some included in the annual plan for 2020.

Expectations from the workshop 

The project facilitation process would consist of the following three main steps:

Gathering expressions of interest - deadline 12 June, 18.00 CEST

ERRIN will collect the interest of regional and local stakeholders in specific calls.

Interested participants should fill in the form below. 

Please be as precise as possible and indicate which calls you are interested in, what role they would like to play, what expertise they can provide and briefly describe your project idea(s).

Shortlist of the calls

Using the information submitted in step 1, ERRIN will identify which of the 16 calls are of most interest to the stakeholders and create virtual discussion tables which will look to initiate proposal development during the online workshop. The main criteria for virtual discussion tables will be:

- most interest from the stakeholders
- the maturity of the project idea
- potential availability of a coordinator

Specific instructions on the roll-out of the online workshop will follow.

Online project facilitation workshop - 30 June, 09.30-12.30

The online workshop will be divided into two parts:

Presentation of the calls and tips on how to write a successful project proposal by representatives from the BB JU and NCPs 

Participants will be invited to moderated exchanges around virtual discussion tables, focusing on the shortlisted calls. ERRIN will facilitate these exchanges and where possible, support their follow-up.

If requested, ERRIN will consider becoming a partner in a consortium, if the project’s approach is of strategic importance for the network and/or one or more of its thematic Working Groups.
