Open innovation cluster for the transition to a biobased economy
Scope of the project
Biocluster is a project in the frame of the call “Entrepreneurship – New factory of the Future” of Agentschap Ondernemen. The project partners are the sector organisations Ghent Bio-Economy Valley, FlandersBio and essenscia (who cooperate through the CINBIOS network) and Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant for scientific and technological support.
The main goal of the project is to facilitate the transition of the Flemish industry to a sustainable, biobased economy by building a competitive biocluster of companies that are able to build new value chains.
The project is primarily aimed at companies from the agro-industry, technology developers and the chemical sector.
The development of new cross-sectoral value chains will be facilitated by organizing informative thematic sessions which will result in more defined and hands-on workgroups. These workgroups will aim for new economic and ecological possibilities by tackling the bottlenecks in the value chain.
