CBE JU is the new €2 billion partnership between the European Union and the Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC). It is building on the success of its predecessor BBI JU.
Circular bio-based industries are considered a key enabler of the green transition towards a resilient, competitive and environmentally sustainable EU economy. The work of CBE JU will contribute to the EU’s climate neutrality goal by 2050 and will support the implementation of EU policies working towards this objective.
By sparking innovation, stimulating collaboration, creating jobs and de-risking investments, CBE JU-funded projects will also boost the local economies across European regions, in particular in rural and coastal areas, and create a shared long-term strategic vision for the sector.
Philippe Mengal, CBE JU Executive Director: “The motto of the CBE JU Programme Office is ‘Building a greener, safer and better Europe’. I can say with pride that my colleagues and I are ready for the challenge, and I hope you will join us in this adventure. We are looking forward to working with you and achieving many great things together!”
