BIOPEN is a Biobased Industries JU project aiming to support collaboration and knowledge sharing in the bio-based industry and to stimulate the set-up of co-innovation partnerships for the development of new products and markets in the sector by setting up an open innovation platform capable to involve industries, research centers and universities. BIOPEN is an actively managed platform, pre-filled with relevant information on funding opportunities, and the ability to search for bio-based information on patents, literature and in any other open access knowledge repositories. It aims at:
• Clustering and networking to develop new value chains and favour the emergence of co-innovation partnerships across the value chains;
• Engaging stakeholders and supporting them to set up co-innovation partnerships alongside existing and new value chains
• Creating a knowledge centre, including five new perspective studies on value chains in the biobased sector, as well as biobased products overview
BIOPEN has received funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 745719.
