Matchmaking event for the call PhD and post-doc projects for resource efficient industrial processes within BioInnovation

Treesearch Matchmaking

In November 2020, the call for PhD and post-doc projects for resource efficient industrial processes within BioInnovation opened for application. In this call, research actors together with industrial partners can apply for funding for research projects on industrial process technologies for bio-based bulk materials. 

On February 3, a digital matchmaking event will be held where you have the possibility to meet researchers and company representatives to discuss and develop ideas for proposals. The matchmaking event open for all who are interested in bio-based processes. 

The matchmaking event is divided into three sessions; an information session about the call, a pitch session where you can take part of 4-minutes pitches by academia and industry who are interested in applying for the call, and a digital mingle for all participants. 

All registered participants will receive a booklet with the abstracts and contact details. 

The registration is closed.


The information session as well as the pitch session will be held on Zoom. For the digital mingle we will move to a more interactive conference program called “Wonder”. Links to both programs will be sent out to all in time.
