EUBREN - The European Biomass Research Network

Researching for bioeconomy

UNIVERSITY & INDUSTRY

Too often research activity carried out by public institutes such as universities and research centres remains out of the commercial interest. At the same time, it is not easy for private companies, investors and enterprises to be updated on the latest results obtained during research studies, and to identify potential promising new projects. EUBREN will actively work on new ‘Research-for-industry’ projects which will focus on the development of advanced technologies and strategies of actual interest for industry. 


But this well-known issue is not the only existing obstacle. The lack of communication between research centres does not facilitate the development of valuable technologies or cooperation initiatives. For this reason, some of the crucial EUBREN activities will be to organise technology platforms and training workshops involving universities specializing in different sectors to present their activities and ideas for future initiatives. Workshops and meetings will be held in Brussels and will allow EUBREN members to communicate, share knowledge, results and opinions. With this new platform of communication, new projects could be developed and new valuable technologies could penetrate the market. Industries and enterprises will be informed on the proceedings, opinions and programmes developed and discussed by EUBREN members.


Another objective for EUBREN is to involve industries working with university experts and researchers. EUBIA members will be invited to assist and participate in technology platforms and provide their contribution. The strict cooperation will bring benefits to both of the participants such as new projects and support for universities, high quality technical consultancy, manpower for industries and enterprises.
