Pilots4U launches a survey to identify the needs of the European bioeconomy sector regarding pilot and demo facilities

Type of post: NEWS IN BRIEF.

The European bioeconomy sector is growing rapidly and to reach its full potential, companies and institutions need support to develop their innovations into marketable products. Early collaboration with facilities that can scale-up their innovative processes from laboratory to industrial scale offering access to a wide range of process equipment and experienced personal can substantially reduce costs, risks and development time.

In view of this situation, the BBI JU has funded Pilots4U project under its 2016 call. Pilots4U sets out to map all existing open access bioeconomy pilot and multipurpose demonstration facilities. It will include data on available equipment and personnel competences with the aim of creating one easily accessible database for all actors operating in the sector. In parallel, it will survey potential users of open access facilities to understand their needs for equipment and expertise. Comparing the available assets with the needs expressed by industry will clarify the areas in which investment in infrastructure for innovation is required.

For this reason, the project has launched a short survey designed to gather information about the type of equipment and services that companies looking to bring a biorefining innovation process towards commercialisation require. This is the link to participate: The summarised, anonymised results of the survey will be made available via the website of the project by June 2018.
