2nd FACCE SURPLUS Call for proposals

Basic Information

Website http://faccesurplus.org/
Aim of the joint call The present call for proposals aims to improve collaboration and cooperation across the European Research Area in the area of sustainable intensification of food and non-food biomass production and decentralised transformation systems, in particular small scale multi-input, multi-product biorefinery concepts. It aims as well at supporting local innovation and value creation from biomass and biorefineries in synergy with the environmentally sustainable intensification of biomass production taking into account the required economic, environmental and social conditions and resilience to climate change. Strong synergies between agricultural production and the food and processing/chemical industry are required for any biorefinery concept, therefore the inclusion of both production and transformation sectors is essential .
