SuperBIO is a Horizon2020 innovation project that aims to develop new, innovative, cross-border and cross-sectorial industrial value chains in the bio-based economy. A value chain consists of multiple stakeholders that are needed to make the innovation happen. This typically includes at least a biomass supplier, a converter and an end-user. The project is business oriented: SuperBIO selects promising value chain ideas which are submitted by companies or other industrial stakeholders and is committed to support SMEs in constructing their value chain. In addition, SuperBIO offers 10 innovation services to SMEs that are part of validated value chains. These service are funded by the project for 75%, 25% needs to be financed by the company. The SME can select multiple services with a maximal total value of € 60 000. All information can be found on the project website.
