Professional support to the uptake of bioeconomy RD results towards market, further research and policy for a more competitive European bioeconomy

Challenge: Though Europe is leading the world in environmental research, such as in the bioeconomy sector, too few results are being brought to market.

Solution: The ProBIO project supported FP7 KBBE and Horizon 2020 bio-economy project result owners to enter the market. Partners screened all 411 KBBE projects to classify results according to their nature and maturity level, and supported each type of result with dedicated professional coaching and tools.

Duration: March 2015 – August 2017
