Business Consultations-Matchmaking Meetings

The BalticBiomass4Value project will bring together enterprises that match in their development needs and offers via virtual meetings. Enterprises engaged in bio-based activities (both private and public), as well as knowledge and technology providers will be selected to separate consultation meetings on the basis of filled out questionnaires, in which they should provide information about their enterprise, its products and/or services, specific interests and development needs.

Consultation meetings will be arranged to encourage enterprises of different profiles (e.g., agricultural producers and renewable energy technology companies) located in the Baltic Sea area to work together in improving particular biomass value chains. Knowledge exchange coordinated by the BalticBiomass4Value project will provide bio-based industry representatives with an insight into available opportunities to make their business more sustainable, while involved knowledge and technology providers will get a chance to learn more about the needs of bio-based businesses and how these could be better addressed.

Information on how to participate in the matchmaking process is available here.

2-days transnational event for experience exchange and networking targeted to public authorities

Combining the efforts of our partners in Latvia, Sweden and Germany, two virtual events are planned with preliminary dates of:

  • 26 May 2021: Discovering good practice examples of industrial symbiosis and bio-based business models (Webinar)

The aim of this event is to engage stakeholders from a triple helix constellation to facilitate the development of the industrial symbiosis mindset. This will be achieved through storytelling experiences and networking enabling the exchange of knowledge and experience across borders. Participants will be introduced with:

    • Tools that will help new actors in developing industrial symbiosis (key policy framework, role of SMEs and municipalities, mapping facilitator’s toolbox);
    • Good practice examples of industrial symbiosis in the Nordic countries (examples of industrial symbiosis in Kalundborg, Paper Province, Sotenäs);
    • Bio-based business models for the replacement of fossil fuels with bio-based fuels, as well as for novel uses of bio-based materials for non-energy purposes;
    • Good practice examples of bio-based business models presented and explained by practitioners, i.e. business companies itself.

Information on how to participate in the webinar is available here.

  • 22-23 September 2021. More information coming soon.
