We are happy to announce we will be hosting a final virtual conference on 17 February, celebrating the achievements of the Bio4Products project and discussing plans for the future. The event is free of charge but registration is mandatory via this link. Read on to find out more about the event. 


For Europe to move towards a competitive bioeconomy, is it is essential that biorefinery technologies developed in the lab and at pilot scale are upscaled and deployed at an industrial scale. Industry and policy makers must work together to create commercial pathways to this greener future – but how?

This interactive event brings together researchers, industry leaders and policy makers to discuss how the European bioeconomy can take green technology from idea to deployment and who needs to do what to make this happen.
