The Innovation Challenge
Do you want to contribute to renewable energy and biofuels?
Do you have a solution for an innovative way of producing biofuels?
Take the chance to participate in the one-year long SET4BIO Innovation Challenge to get support for development of your solution, to meet stakeholders in the sector, and get the opportunity to be matched with suitable funding opportunities.
Objectives of the Innovation Challenge
The Innovation Challenge is directed towards creating innovations that stimulate increased production and use of bioenergy and renewable fuels.
Hence, the SET4BIO challenge will:
- Engage innovators in developing innovative proposals for solutions that stimulate and increase the possibility of producing and using bioenergy and renewable fuels.
- Match innovators with innovative solutions with potential funding opportunities.
For the challenge, we invite innovators that with their solutions address at least one of the six + two value chains for bioenergy and advanced renewable fuels as described by ETIP Bioenergy.
The Challenge Process
From mid-November 2020 this webpage will enable interested teams of innovators to submit applications for participation in the Challenge. These submissions will be reviewed using the three criteria of Relevance to the Challenge scope, Potential and Capacity. Selected teams will be invited to the SET4BIO Innovation Challenge process, starting end of February 2021.
Between March and November, six Events are provided to support participating teams to develop solutions towards the final. Each Event is preceded of a preparation phase in which the teams work with their Concepts in association to the theme of the event.
Continuously throughout the one-year process, the team will:
1) receive feedback from key stakeholders within the sector in regard to their Solution,
2) gradually receive relevant information in regard to funding, creating a basis for future matchmaking.
At the final event, the participating teams with their Solutions will be ranked and the top-3 be awarded Seals of Excellence.
Additional information about the process, participating stakeholders, and benefits of participating will be posted on this webpage along with detailed Rules for participation.
