Chair secures funding for large-scale EU H2020 project

Together with 17 European partners our chair successfully passed the H2020 application process for a project called BioMonitor. The overall objective of the Monitoring the Bioeconomy project is to establish a statistics and modelling framework for the bioeconomy that is effective (supported by a stakeholders’ platform) and robust (compatible with and implementable in existing systems of statistical and customs offices, laboratories and industries). The framework will enable the quantification of bioeconomy and its economic, environmental and social impacts in the EU and its Member States via a wide range of indicators. Interlinks with current CEN standardisation work related to bio-based products will be established from the outset of the project.
