The Joint Undertaking on Bio-based Industries is a public-private partnership aiming at increasing investment in the development of a sustainable bio-based industry sector in Europe. A total of € 3.7 billion will be invested in bio-based innovations over 2024-2020. The EU contribution (Horizon 2020) is expected to amount to €975 million, while the Bio-based Industries Consortium will contribute €2 730 million (of which 1 755 million will be dedicated to additional activities such as Flagship projects).
The Info Day is organised by the Directorate for Bioeconomy and the Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC).
