The Annual Work Programme 2018 (AWP 2018) of the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) has been published!


The drafting of the 2018 AWP of the BBI JU was done via two separate processes, covering the call topics and the rest of the document content. Call topics were developed via a collaboration between the Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC), the European Commission (EC) and the BBI JU. The rest of the document was mainly drafted by BBI JU with inputs from the other two members. The text was consulted in several phases with the BBI JU advisory bodies [Scientific Committee (SC) and States Representative Group (SRG)], and finally the Executive Director presented the document to the Governing Board which formally adopted it.

This document consists of four parts:

  1. An introduction, including a description of BBI JU’s background, objectives and mission;
  2. The description of the scope and details of R&I activities, call and project management rules, BBI JU’s support to operations, governance and the internal control framework;
  3. BBI JU’s 2018 budget including the staff establishment plan;
  4. A list of acronyms.

More information (guide for applicants, FAQs, etc.) will be published once the 2018 call for proposals officially opens, which is very likely to happen on 11 April 2018.
