CommBeBiz-communication workshop during the European Biotech Week 2017
27 September 2017, European Forestry House, Place du Luxemburg 66, 1000 Brussels
How to spread the word about bioeconomy?
The communication workshop on bioeconomy is organised by "CommBeBiz" project funded by the European Commission, Horizon 2020, KBBE Programme and co-ordinated by Minerva Communications UK Ltd.
CommBeBiz provides a bridge from bioeconomy research to business, and for social innovation.
CommBeBiz works with FP7 and H2020 project partners at all stages of their ideas and research development to enable more effective and speedier transfer of knowledge to the marketplace, to policy-players and for the public good.
CommBeBiz targets five specialist bioeconomy segments: Food, Agriculture , Fisheries, Forestry, and Biotechnology.
Since a badge for the European Parliament is required, the registration must be done before the 19. September
Agrimax stakeholder workshop: business models for new supply chains to create value from agri-food waste
28 September 2017, Lleida, Spain
This one-day stakeholder workshop will develop business models for new supply chains to valorise agricultural and food-processing waste.
Inviting farmers, agricultural cooperatives, food producers, investors and other interested stakeholders, we will use the business model canvas to map existing and innovative ways to create, deliver and capture value for the new supply chains being developed by the Agrimax project.
The outcomes from this stakeholder workshop will complement a review of best practice for circular (bio)economy business models as well as analysing the market and regulatory environment to ensure the innovative business models will be successful.
ADVANCES IN GRAIN LEGUME CULTIVATION AND USE
28-29 September 2017, Serbia, Novi Sad, Hotel Park
This conference marks the final year of two EU FP7-KBBE projects devoted to Grain Legumes, LEGATO and EUROLEGUME, and thus the complementarity of the scientific and technical outputs developed by more than 100 researchers, from both projects. This occasion will disseminate highlights from the research accomplished, to stakeholders and society in general in a stimulating programme including leading EU project and invited speakers. The Conference is also open for receiving free communications from the project members and from other teams not belonging to the projects, to be presented as posters/oral communications

GRAIL Final Event
20 September 2017, Barcelona, Spain
The GRAIL project (FP7) has been built with 15 partners from 9 different countries with the aim of finalizing the solutions given previously to the valorization of glycerol and transform then in valuable products in a biorefinery approach. During this 4-year project, GRAIL has developed several products, processes and technologies.
We are proud to present them for our final event that is more than a conference as you will be able to interact with the scientists responsible of the research, touch and taste the products and witness the demonstration of some of the application.
