Public Private Partnership under Horizon 2020

Public consultation on “Bio-based industries, towards a public-private partnership under Horizon 2020?”

Consultation Period:  21.09.2012 – 14.12.2012

This public consultation was intended to provide an opportunity for inputs from all those directly or indirectly connected with the bio-based industry value chain, including representatives of public authorities, farmers and foresters, businesses and associations, academics and technical experts, civil society organisations and individual citizens. It was an opportunity to influence the state of play of the full bio-based industries value chain in Europe, in particular with regard to aspects related to research and innovation.

EIBIR has also participated in a number of other stakeholder consultations in relation to Horizon 2020 and has emphasised the importance of bottom-up initiatives from researchers as opposed to research programmes determined by top-down proposals from policy-makers.
