CreativeQuantum is involved in the Bio-Z joint project
Bio-Z is a project in the BMBF program 'WIR! - Change through Innovation in the Region'. WIR! provides the impetus for new regional alliances and sustainable innovation-based structural change for positive transformation in all structurally weak regions of Germany.
The collaborative project takes a cooperative approach to jointly design development and processing pathways for bio-based products and services. Climate-neutral processes and renewable raw materials provide solutions that mitigate climate change and create secure long-term jobs in the region.
The BioZ project kicked off its concept phase about 11 months ago. Since then, the consortium has grown to 70 alliance partners. Our kick-off meeting with 20 participants was followed by five more digital alliance meetings and seven dialogue group meetings. The result of this collaboration: a concept consisting of 40 pages, 70 LOIs and 16 R&D project descriptions.
The next step is now the evaluation by a jury of experts. BioZ must prevail against 43 other alliances in this process - only 25 initiatives will move on to the next phase and have the chance to receive funding of up to 15 million €. On 17.08.2021 the presentation of the alliance project to the reviewers then took place and has convinced. Now the individual projects will be worked out in detail.
