Innovative bioenergy platform to support stakeholder collaboration
Bioenergy is a renewable form of energy from natural sources – recently living organic matter known as biomass. It can help to lower the EU’s external energy dependence. It can also be part of the Green Deal. In this context, the EU-funded ETIP-B2022-2025 project will boost collaborative efforts of research and innovation stakeholders. The aim will be to strengthen their contribution to the Strategic Energy Technology (SET)-Plan. The project will support ETIP Bioenergy by facilitating Steering Committee and Working Group meetings for ETIP Bioenergy and providing information on research and innovation activities, related technologies, and policies on the ETIP Bioenergy website. It will also develop citizens´ visions of the role of renewable fuels.
The European Technology and Innovation Platform Bioenergy - Support of Renewable Fuels and Advanced Bioenergy Stakeholders 2022-2025 (ETIP-B2022-2025) project aims at triggering collaborative efforts of stakeholders from research to innovation to implementation in the field of renewable fuels and bioenergy. The project will support and empower stakeholders´ contributions to the Green Deal and the Strategic Energy Technology (SET)-Plan. The European Technology and Innovation Platfrom Bioenergy (ETIP Bioenergy) aims to actively engage with stakeholders and civil society, link their needs to policy making of the European Union and Member States, and to provide advice to industry. The ETIP-B2022-2025 project´s objective is to support ETIP Bioenergy in this task.
To achieve these objectives, the project will facilitate Steering Committee and Working Group meetings for ETIP Bioenergy, provide information on research and innovation activities, related technologies and policies on the ETIP Bioenergy website, engage with stakeholders from all involved sectors for information exchange and to provide a basis for ETIP Bioenergy documents, form citizen´s panels to develop citizen´s visions on the role of renewable fuels and bioenergy, and develop policy recommendations. Specific features will include facilitating an update of the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), a biofuels and bioenergy innovation challenge (BBIC), a policy workshop, two Stakeholder Plenary Meetings (SPM) and the development of a financial independence plan for ETIP Bioenergy. All activities will be widely communicated through newsletters, social media postings and dissemination events.
