Special Working Session in KET4CP Final Conference 2021, 10th June at 14:30 - 15:30 CET

Working session: Industrial Biotechnology- From lab to pilots in clean production

In this session you will have the opportunity to get to know some pilot plants partners and their stakeholders working in the bioeconomy. We will take you on a journey and offer you some virtual visits within different pilot plants in Europe. You will see how these pilot plants are working and what makes them unique.

Learn from other use cases how it was to work with a pilot plant during the implementation of a micro grant and why this was the best way to go. The session will also familiarize you with some background information about the benefits of a shared pilot facility.
