We are continuously looking for likeminded innovators that would like to team up with us to get a step closer in achieving the conversion of the textile value chain from petroleum-based to bio-based.

We are publishing calls for project proposals to invite you to join BIOTEXFUTURE with your research ideas. These calls are a result of the combined expertise of the Steering Committee, the Advisory Board and our members. To ensure we look at the bioeconomy from all angles the Project Management Office (PMO) works closely with the TransitionLab transfer projects.

Partner consortia with a new project idea can apply for funding based on the open calls. The Steering Committee will assess the technical content of these project proposals. The project management organisation Projektträger Jülich (PtJ) is responsible for the formal administrative assessment and final approval. The projects are managed by the PtJ like regular BMBF-funded projects. All project partners must join the BIOTEXFUTURE Innovationsbündnis.

You already have an idea, but need (a) partner(s)? You have competencies that match the current call, but need an idea?

 

Then, join the BIOTEXFUTURE idea management workshop in November 2021, where you can pitch your idea and/or find your partner(s) for the open call for project proposals. 

 

More detailed information and registration coming soon!
