European opportunity with the Circular Bio-based Europe (CBE-JU) program
The Circular Bio-based Europe Joint Undertaking (CBE-JU) is a €2 billion partnership between the European Union and the Biobased Industries Consortium (BIC), which funds projects to promote competitive circular bio-based industries as part of Horizon Europe, the European Union's research and innovation program.
This European funding program builds on the success of its predecessor, BBI-JU. Since 2014, this €3.7 billion partnership between the European Union and BIC has supported Europe's biobased industries. For every euro of public money, 2.8 euros of private investment have been generated.
The Circular Bio-based Europe program calls are now open for applications from April 26, 2023, until September 20, 2023. The total budget for the program is €215.5 million.
The program's calls for projects aim to :
- Support research and innovation to develop sustainable bio-based solutions, in particular from co-products and biomass,
- Meet the technological and commercial challenges of the bioeconomy,
- Ensure a sustainable supply of resources.
To find out more about the CE-JU program's AAPs of interest to the sector, and the possibility of joining consortia in the process of being set up, contact the Polymeris Europe team, who will tell you about all the services available to our members.
Polymeris has identified the calls for projects most likely to be of interest to the plastics, composites and rubber industry (listed below), and the replay of a webinar on this subject is available to our members on MyPolymeris.
