News - Final conference "Tomorrow's biorefineries in Europe"

In the frame of the three FP7 biorefinery research projects BioCore, EuroBioRef and SupraBio two one-day conferences were held at the prestigious Hotel Le Plaza in Brussels. The two conference days (11 & 12 February 2014) brought together more than 200 interested industry and research partners from across Europe and beyond to learn about the results and findings of the research projects.


Oral presentations were complemented with a poster presentation, a product exhibition, a roundtable debate, a networking cocktail and a 1-to-1 partnering session.

Over the two days some 20 presentations were given, covering a range of topics. You can download the BIOCORE presentations and the other presentations on the conference website (click here).
