The Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) is a €3.7 billion public-private partnership (PPP) between the EU and the industry and it represents the largest industrial and economic cooperation endeavor financially ever undertaken in Europe in this field. Through its collaborative model, BBI JU is bridging the gap between research and market, stimulating the Research & Innovation in Europe and integrating economic actors along the whole value chain. BBI JU remains an important pillar of Europe’s bioeconomy strategy, playing a key role in creating markets for bio-based products and enabling a sustainable bio-based circular economy. In the EU28, this growing economy employs 3.7 million people. By demonstrating the scaling up effect, BBI JU is helping to convince brand owners to engage creating new markets and products for consumers, and leading to far-reaching impact on the economy at both regional and international level.
