Pilots4U has set up one easily accessible database of open-access pilot and demonstration infrastructure for the European bioeconomy. The project also carried out an online survey to understand the equipment and related services required by (potential) users of open-access pilot facilities.
By comparing the established database with the survey results, Pilost4U is currently performing a gap analysis to understand where the EU may have over/under capacity and vulnerabilities now and in the near future. These results will be the initial point for discussion during the workshops and the basis for investment business cases to improve and strengthen the European landscape of pilot and demonstration facilities.
This interactive workshop will bring together industry, researchers and experts from pilot plants to discuss the state of the European open-access pilot and demonstration infrastructure for the bioeconomy. They will also examine the different opportunities to improve service delivery and interconnection between open-access facilities.
WHO WILL BE THERE?
Representatives of EU industry • Representatives of EU research • Representatives of open-access facilities
If you have brought, or you are looking to bring an innovative bio-based, biorefinery or biotechnology process towards commercialisation, please join our workshops!
