New project to help European SME's drive growth in the bio-based economy

18 April 2013
The European Commission has launched a new three-year project “Bio Base NWE” to support the development of the bio-based economy in North West Europe (NWE). The €6.2 million (£5.35 million) project will work mainly with small and medium businesses (SME’s) to help facilitate innovation and business development in bio-based technologies. Bio Base NWE will also provide training and education to help tackle the shortage of skilled professionals in North West Europe’s bio-based industries (Press Release Bio Base Europe, 15 April 2013).
