The European Research Infrastructure for Circular Forest Bioeconomy (ERIFORE) is pleased to invite you to the 9th EIS High – Level Lunch debate on “Future research infrastructure for European leadership in circular forest bioeconomy”. The event, co-hosted by Sirpa Pietikainen MEP and Henna Virkkunen MEP, will take place on Wednesday, 29 November, in the Members’ Salon of the European Parliament from 12:30 to 14:30. The event is organized together with Knowledge4Innovation.
The biobased economy poses new questions. In stead of huge homogeneous raw material flows, the new raw material is (often) scattered and heterogeneous. For this reason REWIN and Proefboerderij de Rusthoeve, organize the workshop “The Collaboration Plan(t)”, because the solution is found in collaboration.
We invite all stakeholders (managing authorities, intermediate bodies, regional funding authorities and applicants, funding beneficiaries, innovation organisations, cluster organisations, users of SPF…) with an interest in shared pilot facilities (SPF) and innovation to be actively involved in this Study Visit.
