The pilot action was presented by Pannon Pro Innovations Ltd with partner CEI - Central European Initiative. The project aims to foster the development of sustainable energy towards a bio-based economy, with a particular focus on the Middle Danube area and on biomass feedstock from agricultural and forestry activities, as well as organic industrial by-products. Industry players are involved through a circular economy approach in order to valorise by products, while creating new value chains and functioning business models.

An online survey to identify challenges and gaps hindering the full-scale deployment of bioeconomy in the targeted area is carried out by making use of the methodology developed in the Climate KIC Biohorizons project. Two networking events addressing the bottlenecks mapped through the online survey are also organized. As an additional output, the Pilot Activity creates the basis for the establishment of a Danube Region bioenergy/bioeconomy network where stakeholders are motivated through open innovation, business modelling and project development.
