SuperBIO is an innovation project submitted in the H2020 call Cluster facilitated projects for new value chains (Innosup 2015-1), aimed for projects with a concrete strategic vision to build new industrial value chains by integrating and supporting groups of SMEs in collaboration with other innovation actors.
The project aim at (i) creating open collaboration spaces for SMEs, LEs and other stakeholders in the bio-based economy, (ii) identifying new industrial value chain concepts maximizing the benefits of the EU business and citizens, (iii) constructing highly promising, disruptive and sustainable new industrial value chains by selection of synergistic groups of SMEs, LEs and other stakeholders and (iv) providing a diverse, stepwise and comprehensive innovation support program that enables to efficiently and optimally validate the new value chains and to bring them closer to the market.
The SuperBIO project main objective is to build at least 10 new value chains around innovative and promising ideas from the business community. In addition, SuperBIO will offer innovation services to at least 30 third party SMEs that are part of identified value chains.
The output of this project will lead to the implementation of new value chains, the production of drop-in chemicals and products or the production of new chemicals and products with improved features. It can lead to investments in dedicated industrial production sites for the new value chains eg. through ESIF funds and therefore be a leverage for re-industrialisation of the EU using innovative technologies.
In short, SuperBIO offers a unique opportunity to bring innovative, sustainable, cross border and cross sectorial value chains closer to the market.
The project is organizing its 1st Thematic Workshop: Valorization of residues from intensive horticulture-A business opportunity for Bio-bases Industries on the 12th of September 2016 in Seville-Spain. More information about the event can be found here.
