Biofuels R&D&D Mapping
To achieve an overview of the current state of biofuels R&D&D in Europe vis à vis the Strategic Research Agenda & Strategy Deployment Document (SRA/SDD), a database has been created to collate details of relevant ongoing projects funded by EU, Member States. The database covers studies, research and demonstration projects.
The mapping process has been initiated by the Biofuels TP secretariat. This involves gathering information on projects funded by the EC, Member States or other countries, using information currently available on Cordis, Biomatnet and other information sources.
However, the ongoing participation of stakeholders is crucial to obtain a more complete picture of ongoing R&D projects. All registered stakeholders can supply this information via an online questionnaire. They will also have access to the searchable database of projects.
Stakeholders can also access and contribute to the Biofuels Pilot Plants Database being developed by the EBTP.
Similarly, information on 2nd Generation Pilot Plants in Europe, the United States and Australia is also being gathered and disseminated by IEA Bioenergy Task 39.
