Coordinating the EuroBioRef Project for FP7 funding
“Ayming expertise was really valuable to identify the most adapted European call, identify and mobilise adequate partners and write the application files."
- Franck Dumeignil, EuroBioRef Coordinator, CNRS
The EuroBioRef project (European Multilevel Integrated Biorefinery Design for Sustainable Biomass Processing) successfully achieved funding in 2010 for a four year duration. With 29 partners from 15 countries in a major collaborative effort, the project proposed to fill the gap between the agriculture and chemical industries, and integrate the entire biomass chain from fields to final commercial products.
The project generated a lot of results, with an important impact on the European bioeconomy, including new energy and new chemicals production strategies.
The role of Ayming in this project is as follows:
- Identification of European calls for projects
- Research and mobilisation of appropriate partners
- Preperation of the dossier in line with European Commission expectations
- Assistance with project coordination
- Operational consultancy
- Ensure partnership dynamics
- Analyse and assess technical and financial requests from the financing authority
- Collect administrative (legal documents) and financial information
- Support project management (meeting, technical and financial reporting, KPIs etc.)
The EuroBioRef Project ran from 2010 - 2014 and was successful in securing €23million.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 241718.
