European industrial bioenergy initiative (EIBI)

Key Information

Country/Region:

Description: 
The EIBI is one of the industrial initiatives under the SET Plan that aim to prioritise and facilitate 'first-of-a-kind' demonstration of innovative 'clean energy' technologies in Europe. The European Industrial Bioenergy Initiative EIBI was officially launched on 15-16 November 2010, following development of a draft EIBI proposal by the EBTP and the EC in 2009, which laid out the planned objectives and scope of the initiative. The EIBI covers seven value chains: 4 thermochemical and 3 biochemical. Following an FP7 call in July 2012, an ERA-NET Plus activity was launched entitled Bioenergy Sustaining the Future (BESTF). A first BESTF call was launched in January 2013. This activity aims to provide funding and support to collaborative bioenergy projects that demonstrate one or more innovative steps resulting in demonstration at a pre-commercial stage. A second BESTF2 call was launched in December 2013.
Goal/Aim: 
- Support bioenergy projects.
