BBI JU Synergy Label recognises nine project proposals for their excellence

21 September 2020

On 6 October, during the online Synergy Label Award Ceremony open event, BBI JU will award the Synergy Label to nine project proposals from the 2019 Call for proposals. Join us and discover the awarded project proposals.

These are proposals that had high enough scores to receive funding but did not get it due to budget limits. It will be an excellent opportunity to learn about the possible funding sources available after submitting a project proposal to a BBI JU call for proposals. With the Synergy Label recognition, BBI JU aims to boost funding opportunities for these projects and help to advance the green recovery.

In this award ceremony, web-streamed via BBI JU Youtube and Twitter channels, several funding organisations that have partnered with BBI JU via Memoranda of Understanding will present additional funding opportunities. The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the European Circular Bioeconomy Fund (ECBF) will explain how these proposals may apply for their funding schemes, through the recognition given by this label. The awarded proposals will also have the chance to make a pitch presentation about their projects plans and the impact of potential additional funding sources.

The BBI JU Synergy Label is a pilot initiative that recognises the value and excellence of Innovation Actions (Demonstration Actions and Flagship Actions) proposals submitted to the BBI JU Call for proposals and qualified above the quality threshold. The label recognises the excellence of these proposals and boosts the reputation of the applicant organisations, thus making easier their access to alternative funding sources (programmes at the EU, Member State or regional level, international funds, etc.).

This year, the BBI JU Synergy Label will be awarded to nine proposals from the 2019 Call for proposals: AlgaeCoop, BIOSUSTAIN, BLOOM, FUNgredients, GIANT, NutWAVE, RAWHEALTHURE, RISING and Up4Value.
