As agreed at the last Bioeconomy WG meeting, a small group of regions met to discuss and plan the organisation of the first H2020 brokerage event of the ERRIN Bioeconomy WG. Farha Brahmi is coordinating the organisation of the bioeconomy brokerage, so if you have any question or comment, feel free to contact her at Invest NI – farha.brahmi@investni.com.

During this meeting the following points were agreed:

1. The brokerage will focus on 2014 calls of H2020 Challenge 2 and challenge 5, and the LEIT Biotech calls.

2. We will operate in the same way as for the last two brokerage events:

PRE-REGISTRATION OF INTEREST: A template has been set up for circulation in ERRIN regions to enquire:

a. Who is interested in participating in a brokerage event in Brussels

b. Which organisation/company has a project idea

c. What is/are the call(s) on which they would like to focus. The deadline for a pre-registration of interest is October 15th .

2nd PREPARATORY MEETING OF THE GROUP: Late October/ early November the coordinating group will meet again to analyse the pre-registration forms which have been received in order to decide how many workshop tables should be organised, etc. The final date of the event will be discussed and agreed according to information gathered on:

a. The date of the EU information days

b. The date of official publications and deadlines of calls

c. We will work in close collaboration with the Energy WG (which was present at the preparatory meeting)

If you wish to attend the next preparatory meeting, do not hesitate to contact Farha. And, if you hear any relevant information which may be key in the choice of the timing of the brokerage, do not hesitate to let Farha know!

3. CIRCULATION OF INVITATION FOR REGISTRATION AND FINAL AGENDA: We are planning to circulate a final agenda with a set date, more details on the project ideas to be addressed at each workshop table, and a venue by the end of November.

Please, fill out the mentioned template to be circulated to your regional stakeholders! We kindly ask you to send the filled templates to Andrea at ERRIN secretariat: members@errin.eu no later than the 15th of October.
