The details of the very first call of CBE JU were published this June after a year of transition and the publication of the CBE JU Annual Work Programme 2022. Like this, the first call of CBE JU (HORIZON-JTI-CBEJU-2022) follows the line set by its predecessor (BBI JU); looking to fund projects that develop innovative and sustainable bio-based solutions.
On this occasion, the focus of the call is on the following strategic priorities: feedstock, processing, products, and cross-cutting aspects of communication and environmental sustainability. All in all, a funding opportunity for projects and initiatives that support a stronger EU bioeconomy.
What type of innovations and technologies can be funded?
The CBE JU call for September 2022 will fund projects starting with a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of 3: that is, projects that research, develop and validate technologies (TRL 3 to 5). Then, it will also cover projects that work on the scalation of prototypes and demonstration of technologies (TRL6-7) and projects that put into place a large-scale first-of-its-kind product facility in Europe (TRL 8 – Flagship projects).
In total, the call for September 2022 is expected to fund:
- 10 projects with a TRL 3-5;
- 8 projects with a TRL 6-7; and 2 projects of TRL8.
- Additionally, the call for September 2022 will also fund one project not linked to any TRL: an action focused on the collection of best practices and benchmarks (a Coordination and Support Action, CSA).
What topics and funding are available in this CBE JU call?
CBE JU has structured its Work Programme around 12 topics divided by TRL, with a total budget of 120 million euros. It welcomes project proposals for:
- Research & Innovation Actions (TRL 3 to 5)
- Innovation Actions (TRL 6 to 8)
- Coordination and Support Actions (actions not connected to any technology readiness level)
The infographic below summarises how these topics and types of actions are connected:
