bbi - France House Hunt > EU - Bio-Based Industries JTI, Call 2016

> EU - Call Health 2015, results


The Bio-Based Industries Joint Technology Initiative (BBI JTI) is a new 3,7 billion of euros Public-Private Partnership between the EU and the Bio-based Industries Consortium. Operating under Horizon 2020, it is driven by the Vision and Strategic Innovation and Research Agenda (SIRA) developed by the industry.

The BBI JTI is responsible for the implementation of open call for proposals for research and innovation actions and innovation actions, as well as coordination and support actions, in line with the Horizon 2020 rules for participation.

Call 2016

The new call for proposals has a budget of 188.650.000 euros. The following topics will be financed:

  • BBI-2016-D02: Improvement and adaptation of industrial crop varieties and novel sources of biomass to diversify biomass feedstock for biorefineries
  • BBI-2016-D03: Valorisation of lignin and other side-streams to increase efficiency of biorefineries and increase sustainability of the whole value chain
  • BBI-2016-D04: New and optimised biorefinery approaches enabling the creation of local value chains in underdeveloped or unexploited areas
  • BBI-2016-D05: Bio-based polymers/plastic materials with new functionalities for medical, construction, automotive and textile industries
  • BBI-2016-D06: Valorisation of the organic content of Municipal Solid Waste and contributing to the renewable circular economy
  • BBI-2016-D07: Optimise technical production routes to bio-based chemicals in bio- or chemo-catalytic processes
  • BBI-2016-D08: New sources of proteins for animal feed from co-products to address the EU protein gap
  • BBI-2016-D09: Biomass production on unused land for conversion into added-value products while ‘boosting rural and industrial development’
  • BBI-2016-F01: Valorisation of by-products or waste-streams from the food processing industry into high added-value products for market applications
  • BBI-2016-F02: Converting bio-based feedstocks via chemical building blocks into advanced materials for market applications
  • BBI-2016-R01: Valorisation of the organic content of wastewater as feedstock, contributing to the renewable circular economy
