SET4BIO: Supporting the Implementation of the Set-Plan Action 8 Renewable Fuels and Bioenergy

Last March 2020, the EU Horizon 2020 funded project SET4BIO was launched with the aim to support the execution of the Implementation Plan of Action 8 (IP8) - Bioenergy and Renewable Fuels for Sustainable Transport, in order to make a step change in the build-up of a cost-competitive bioenergy and renewable fuels market in the EU and globally. The three-year project is carried out by a consortium of six partners, coordinated by RISE Research Institutes of Sweden. The main task of SET4BIO is helping to achieve the research and innovation goals of the Energy Union through the implementation of the Integrated Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan, endorsed by EU Member States and SET Plan Associated Countries. It will also share inputs and strategic recommendations to a broad public of experts and citizens interested in the decarbonization of the EU transport sector. Given the significant strategic importance and opportunities for the Renewable Fuels and Bioenergy sector we look forward to seeing how we can help and catalyse development, says Patrik Klintbom at RISE which is Project Coordinator for SET4BIO.

The specific objectives of SET4BIO are:

  1. Support the realisation of 13 Research & Innovation activities (as identified by the SET Plan Implementation Plan Action 8 - IP8) by promoting fluent working relations and partnerships between key stakeholders from industry, SET Plan countries and academia;
  2. Facilitate the mobilisation of national and European funding from both the public and private sector for delivering bioenergy and renewable fuels Research & Innovation activities during the project and beyond its closure;
  3. Set up an enabling working framework (on policy and investment level) for further development and deployment of bioenergy and renewable fuels technologies in the European market;
  4. Pilot processes and mechanism through dedicated Innovation contests for favouring the market entrance of technologies;
  5. Maximize the impacts deriving from a cost-competitive world class European market for bioenergy and renewable fuels.
