Welcome to ERA-NET Bioenergy! Here you can find background information and project descriptions on bioenergy research.
The European strategy for renewable energy sources identifies bioenergy as the most important renewable energy source for the future: a source of cleaner, more secure and sustainable power for Europe. Bioenergy is a highly diverse area: crops are converted to biofuels for transport; landfill sites are tapped for biogas to heat towns; and forestry residues are used to produce electricity. As national programmes fund 90% of bioenergy research in Europe, coordinating them will improve outcomes. The ERA-NET Bioenergy networks national bioenergy research programmes to improve cost-effectiveness and ensure the maximum research impacts for this vital energy sector. More about ERA-NET Bioenergy.
ERA-NET Bioenergy has been running for six years (2004-2010) funded by the FP6 programme. Authorities from ten countries have been participating in ERA-NET Bioenergy. From 2011 eight countries decided to continue the network and the important work on bioenergy research without EC funding. Browse through general information on research, programmes, calls etc. that is publicly available. Target groups are for example researchers, programme managers and programme owners.
