After only twelve months of operation the project is exceeding expectations, with 20 new value chains already developed. It is expected that 30 new value chains will be created before the end of this year! New applicants should therefore hurry up to become one of the new value chains to be developed and supported by SuperBIO!
The newly established value chains in SuperBIO are as diverse as can be expected in the biobased economy: biogas production, food, horticultural and agricultural waste valorisation, bioplastics production, and production of high-value compounds such as crop-protection products, fragrances or food additives are some of many sectors of innovation attracted by the project. SuperBIO is a truly Europe-wide project, attracting SMEs from Belgium, Finland, France, Israel, Italy, Portugal, UK, Spain, The Netherlands, Norway and Turkey.
SMEs participating in the value chains can each receive innovation services to a value of €60 000, with 75% of the support funded through the project. These 20 developed value chains are now gaining more insight into feedstock and market information, LCA, techno-economics, regulatory barriers, business planning and access to investors, subsidy strategy, IP protection, and proof-of-concept or scale-up. With its innovation support services, SuperBIO fills a real need for EU SMEs and gives them a head start to get closer to the market.
SuperBIO still welcomes applications for new value chains from industrial stakeholders. Hurry up and take advantage of this exclusive opportunity as we can only support a limited number of SMEs with only 10 left. Get in touch with the SuperBIO consortium that consists of 10 expert organisations, leaders in the bio-based economy. We can help you to apply for the project, and establish new cross-border value chains.
