Increasing impact from publicly funded research - Lessons from the bioeconomy

28 June – European Parliament, Brussels

Increasing impact from publicly funded research - Lessons from the bioeconomy

Dinner debate hosted by Lieve Wierinck MEP

How can we ensure that publicly funded bioeconomy research has a positive impact on society?

ProBIO will be in the European Parliament on 28 June to discuss how to increase impact from publicly funded research, in a Dinner Debate hosted by Lieve Wierinck MEP, member of the Industry, Research and Energy Committee, and shadow rapporteur on the European Parliament’s assessment of the implementation of Horizon 2020.

The debate will be animated by the partners of the ProBIO project, a multi-disciplinary team built around highly specialised green innovation consultancies, with deep experience in innovation support. ProBIO has explored over 400 projects funded by the Knowledge Based Bioeconomy (KBBE) FP7 Programme, to identify the most advanced research results, and provide result owners with individual coaching to help them to commercialise their products and services.

This event will give you the opportunity to debate the barriers to achieving impact from research results, the most appropriate ways to support result commercialisation, and the necessary features of the Horizon 2020 follow-up programme.

Registration is mandatory, but free of charge. If you are interested in registering, please contact Valeria Mazzagatti for more information.

Please note that due to limited space, we reserve the right to limit the number of attendees per organisation.
