Deadline: 7 March 2017

In the frame of the ERA-NET FACCE SURPLUS (Sustainable and Resilient agriculture for food and non-food systems), 10 partners has launched a call for joint research projects on “Small scale Biorefineries”. Recognizing that other initiatives are considering the scope and application of large-scale biorefineries in the EU context, the second call of FACCE SURPLUS will focus on the small-scale biorefinery concepts and their potential role in enhancing the sustainability and productivity of EU agriculture, as well as their scope to benefit the rural economy.

The present call for proposals aims to improve collaboration and cooperation across the European Research Area in the area of sustainable intensification of food and non-food biomass production and decentralised transformation systems, in particular small scale multi-input, multi-product biorefinery concepts.

It aims as well at supporting local innovation and value creation from biomass and biorefineries in synergy with the environmentally sustainable intensification of biomass production taking into account the required economic, environmental and social conditions and resilience to climate change.
