THE BIOECONOMY RESEARCH PROGRAMME – with the industry towards a more sustainable world
What will be the next big thing?
It’s of course impossible to predict, but without extensive experiments and fast scaling, you will never be there among the first. It is beneficial for enterprises to do this in collaboration, for instance within international The Bioeconomy Research Programme.
Enterprises invests in research that is profitable
Enterprises and RISE together generate competitiveness based on sustainability. Through industrial research on enhancing resource efficiency. Through adding value to raw material, to products and transforming waste to products. History shows that innovation can add commercial value to residues and side streams. A profitability is constituted as the production of a company is given a higher value. This profitability is fundamental for an industry to be interested in investing in research. The value of research is leveraged when performed collectively, the common set can cover more. To be able to use the same researchers from the common research in the bilateral is also very cost efficient.
One programme ends in December, the next begins in January
2020 is the last year of the ongoing programme, 2021 is the first of the next. Some projects from the ending programme will continue in the next, with an extended knowledgebase towards bolder targets. Maybe with new partners contributing with new perspectives and experiences, or new needs. There are also new hypotheses for new contexts to be solved with the extended amount of knowledge centres that constitutes todays RISE.
