PLATFORM in EPSO newsletter of September 2014
In the lastest EPSO newsletter of September 2014 a newsitem on the digital version of the book 'Bioeconomy ERA-NET Actions' was included. The newsitem brings attention to the section of the PLATFORM website dedicated to all ERA-NET Actions in the area of the bioeconomy. Each of the projects described in the book has its webpage and pdfs can be downloaded per project. With the search function on the website the pages are easily accessible when looking for specific information e.g. on a certain country participating in the projects or in joint calls.
More than 30 European Research Area Networks (ERA-NETs) in the bioeconomy sectors have been funded under FP6 and FP7. Through coordination and collaboration between national research programmes, these networks contribute to meeting a sustainable bioeconomy, be it in the area of agriculture, forestry or the marine, and on topics ranging from biotechnologies, application of ICT and robotics, organic food and farming, forest-based materials, statutory plant health, rural development, infectious diseases of livestock, or plant sciences.
