The first annual Global Biobased Business competition (G-BiB) has been launched with the aim of producing new and innovative bio-based products, and stimulating entrepreneurship in Universities.
The challenge is to produce an innovative business plan based on the design for sustainable production of a biorenewable product such as biofuels, biochemicals or biomaterials.
A professional jury will be appointed by BIG-C per country to evaluate the business plans on the following aspects: quality of the proposed design, viability of the business plan, originality of the proposed business idea, sustainability performance and presentation of the plan.
The competition is an initiative of the BioInnovation Growth mega-Cluster (BIG-C) and is open to Master and PhD students in Germany, the Netherlands and Brazil.
The final award of €10.000, will be provided for by industry to help further develop the business plan. Find out more about the competition, including how to enter, here.
