The European Commission has presented a new European strategy concerning the European bioeconomy. A third call of the European Research Area Industrial Biotechnology (ERA-IB 2) is now launched. The Commission on the one hand wants to invest in a more sustainable use of renewable resources. On the other hand they want to invest in a more efficient conversion of research results into practice. In the focus are multilateral research projects using Industrial Biotechnology (IB). The title is ‘Industrial biotechnology for Europe: an integrated approach’. Its main goal is to encourage academics and industrial researchers with expertise in IB to work together across the whole value chain. By co-funding this call, the organisations will contribute to less fragmentation of resources and an increase in transnational networking. Cross-border partnerships are important objectives to achieve sustainable alternatives to petroleum-based products.

The joint call’s main objective is to establish joint research and development activities in the field of Industrial Biotechnology, as part of the KBBE theme of the Seventh European Framework Programme (FP7). These shared projects must be composed of a minimum of three and a maximum of eight participants from at least three ERA-IB partner countries. Pre-proposals have to be submitted by 30 April 2012 and full proposals by 31 July 2012.

ERA-IB informs as well about further topics and participating organisations.
