About the project
The BIO-TIC project has an ambitious goal: driving technological innovation and building solid foundations for a growing industrial biotechnology sector in the EU. This €2.8 million project (€2 million funded by the European Commission) is built on three pillars: an online industrial biotech community, an assessment of biomass and sustainability in industrial biotech, and an action plan for industrial biotech in Europe.
- The online industrial biotech community is the go-to web platform for industrial biotechnology experts and companies who want to exchange on the subject, discuss funding opportunities, showcase their talent and products and ultimately drive the European bioeconomy
- The sustainability and biomass flows in the bioeconomy pillar works towards providing two important tools: one to develop a methodology for understanding how much biomass is used in the European bioeconomy and one to collect and show sustainability data of a series of biobased products
- The action plan for industrial biotech in Europe focuses on market, R&D and non-technological aspects of the technology to draw up recommendations for overcoming barriers to industrial biotechnology in the EU
BIO-TIC comprises 12 project partners. Given that the consortium cannot possibly have all the answers, the BIO-TIC process actively encourages stakeholder participation and involvement. Visit our “Get Involved” section to share your opinion and help the BIO-TIC partners draw an accurate picture of industrial biotechnology and its future in Europe.
