Joint Call 6 (2012)

In the framework of ERA-NET Bioenergy, the sixth joint call was launched on March 1st 2012. This time the call was open for proposals on two topics: “Innovations in biogas production and Sustainable biomass for energy (energy crops)” (call text). Five countries participated with their national programmes: Germany, Ireland, Poland, Sweden and the United Kingdom. In the end the following 4 proposals were funded for a total budget of 5.7 million euro. Presentations about the mid-term results were held at the seminar in Hanover, Nov 11th 2014.
