This specific webinar will focus on the EU-wide (un)availability of pilot and demonstration equipment for technologies related to Algae Cultivation.

Aim and focus of this specific 'Horizon Scan' webinar

Besides the establishment of a database for open access pilot and demonstration infrastructure, the Pilots4U project also carried out an online survey to understand the equipment needs and related services required by potential users of open access pilot and demonstration facilities.

By comparing the contents of the database with the survey results, Pilots4U is currently performing a gap analysis to understand where the EU may have over/under capacity and vulnerabilities now and in the near future. This gap analysis will be the initial point for discussion during the webinar and the basis for investment business cases to improve and strengthen the European landscape of pilot and demonstration facilities.

Why do we need your input?

We would like to validate our findings in the field of algae cultivation by discussing them with a broad range of experts, including representatives of EU industry, research, open access pilot facilities and SMEs, that have brought or are looking to bring innovative bio-based, biorefinery or biotechnology processes towards commercialisation.

With your input, Pilots4U will build efficient business cases for investment to strengthen the European landscape of open access pilot and demonstration facilities, which will, in turn, contribute to speeding up bio-economy innovation.
