Final conference of the FIBRA project entitled “Boosting market share of fibre crops between EU and China” to be held in Brussels, November 23, 2015
On November 23, 2015, the final conference of the FP7-project FIBRA (Fibre Crops as a sustainable source of bio-based material for Industrial Products in Europe and China) will be held in Brussels. Please find the agenda of the conference attached. Participation at the conference is free of charge. For registration, please fill out the following form: http://goo.gl/forms/w4OsE0dXCr. For further questions on the event, please contact Dr. Efi Alexopoulou (ealex@cres.gr).
The consortium for the FIBRA project consists of 16 European and Chinese partners and is coordinated by the Centre for Renewable Energy Sources (CRES) from Pikermi Attikis, Greece.
The main target of the FIBRA network was to link the research and development activities for fibre crop innovations carried out by universities and institutions in both the EU and China and to provide a long-term vision on future common research activities on fibre crops. The network thus improved researchers’ training opportunities.
In the last three years, the FIBRA project established an effective and wide coordination of the research activities on fibre crops in Europe and China in order to stimulate a broad stakeholders’ participation and generate common research programmes to fulfil the international EU policy targets.
This project is funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development. Grant Agreement no. 311965. For more information about the project, please visit www.fibrafp7.net.
