This ERA-NET Co-fund BESTF3 (Bioenergy Sustaining the Future; 01/2016 - 11/2020) will bring together a number of national and transnational organisations with an interest in promoting the greater use of bioenergy. It follows on from two previous BESTF ERA-NET Plus initiatives launched in 2013 and, like its predecessors, aims to kick-start large scale investment in close-to-market implementation of bioenergy, thereby helping to achieve the key objectives of the European Industrial Bioenergy Initiative (EIBI) Implementation Plan and the Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan.
he key objectives of BESTF3 are:
- To implement a single collaborative funding call that will support projects focused on the generation of bioenergy.
- To maintain and enhance coherence and networking between national bioenergy programmes across the EU.
- To further the demonstration of enhanced bioenergy technologies in order to help develop robust project plans for a range of demonstrator and flagship plants, that will help Europe to make progress towards achieving its 2016 and 2020 energy targets.
- To disseminate knowledge gained from the programme and individual projects across the EU.
