FACCE SURPLUS Kick-off meeting and Biorefining Workshop in Denmark

To present funded projects and create synergy with ongoing research, FACCE SURPLUS hosted a kick-off event in Denmark in September 2016. The event was part of the International Biorefining Seminar and Partnering Workshop which aimed at facilitating European consortia establishment in the field of biorefining and food production.

FACCE SURPLUS, Aarhus University and partners invited 200 European stakeholders from research and industry to attend the International Biorefining Seminar & Partnering Workshop which was held in Denmark on September 14 and 15.

The event marked the launch of FACCE SURPLUS and the research projects selected within the frame of this €14 Million H2020-supported ERA-Net. Participants were thereby given a unique chance to provide valuable insights and feedback to the projects as they were presented shortly, addressing the potential expectations of stakeholders.

Furthermore, participants are invited to take part in specific workshops with the aim of creating project groups/consortia for project applications in 2017 and forward under FACCE SURPLUS, Horizon 2020 or the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI). Thus, the event was structured to provide an opportunity for those interested in working within specific fields of biorefining and food production to meet others who can complement their own skills and make excellent consortium members.

During the meeting, you will also get the chance to visit one of Europe's most advanced research platforms in the field of biobased production and biorefinery, located at Aarhus University.

The event is free of charge and registration is done via following this link
