What services does Bio Base NWE provide?

  • The Bio Base NWE network, representing leading biobased economy experts, advises entrepreneurs from across North West Europe on how to develop new ideas into marketable products, from the first feasibility study or market analysis up to funding and investment scenarios.

Bio Base NWE established a transnational support structure to boost innovation and business development in biobased enterprises in NWE. We support biobased SMEs with innovation management, business development and biobased technology. We set up matchmaking activities to enable transnational business cooperation for biobased SMEs across North West Europe.

  • Bio Base NWE provides financial support to SMEs to perform proof-of-concept studies and/or to demonstrate innovative biobased technologies at Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant, an independent, state-of–the-art demonstration facility in Ghent, Belgium.

SMEs get the opportunity to tap into the advanced expertise and technical facilities of the partnership, as we will perform feasibility analyses of promising innovative biobased technologies. Together with SMEs we identify their needs regarding pilot facilities to develop biobased technologies into marketable products and make selected investments in such equipment to maximise the innovation potential of the biobased SMEs in NWE.

Bio Base NWE also supports SMEs beyond the technical aspects of scale up. Our network of experts can provide help with market analysis and funding and investment scenarios.

  • Bio Base NWE provides programs and tools for training and education to help tackle the shortage of skilled professionals in North West Europe’s biobased industries.

Finally we will develop and deliver programs and tools for professional training to contribute to an increased availability of skilled workers for the bio-based industry in NWE.

  • Bio Base NWE is representing you in the European Bioeconomy Strategy roll-out.
