Biomass refers to renewable energy coming from biological material such as trees, plants, manure, and municipal waste. BioMob seeks to mobilise biomass resources for regional development. The overall concept of BioMob is the development of research-driven clusters for biomass-mobilisation. The challenge is to identify appropriate biomass synergies between regions, research themes and enterprise opportunity, with the following work packages:
Ø Regional Challenges will focus on the gaps between the research demands of biomass mobilisation and the capabilities of the local RTD performers.
Ø International Benchmarking will undertake benchmarking of existing initiatives in the mobilisation of biomass.
Ø Action Plans will have two parts: individual regional plans and the Joint Action Plan between the regions.
Ø Business Development will ensure final delivery of results to biomass enterprises in each region, linking the project outcomes with enterprises and potential users in the regions.
Ø Exploitation will identify proposals prepared to the level necessary to respond to resource opportunities
Ø Dissemination will promote the results at local and regional level on biomass mobilisation.
The BioMob project is supported by the Regions of Knowledge Initiative of the Seventh Framework Programme
