The seventh BBI JU Info Day will take place on 22 April 2020 as a virtual event only, due to safety and health considerations for all participants during the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak.

Apologise are issued for the inconveniences that may result from this unexpected change. If you already booked your transport and stay in Brussels, please cancel them since there will be no opportunity to attend the event physically. The sessions will be broadcast via web streaming and networking and one-to-one meetings will still be fundamental parts of the agenda, but only in a virtual form.

The virtual format will focus on the 2020 Call for proposals. Moreover, we have expanded the online networking opportunities throughout the event and will ensure interactive Q&A sessions.


Participants are encouraged to register for the info day to receive all the information and latest updates about the event, 2020 Call for proposals and other funding opportunities for the bio-based industries. The registration is free of charge. However, web streaming will be open to anyone to follow.


All the timing is following the Brussels timezone (GMT+1).

BBI JU Info Day is extended to two days to allow more online networking opportunities. The first part of 22 April will be dedicated to presentations on topics ranging from the vision for the bioeconomy in Europe to the specificities of drafting a good proposal for the Call 2020. The web streaming will start at 9:30 and will run until 12:50. The second part of the day and 23 April full day will support one-to-one meetings to be scheduled via the BBI JU Partnering Platform.
