European Technology and Innovation Platform Bioenergy

9th Stakeholder Plenary Meeting

20-21 November 2019

THE INTERNATIONAL AUDITORIUM
Boulevard du Roi Albert II, 5, B-1210 Brussels


The 9th Stakeholder Plenary Meeting (SPM) of the European Technology and Innovation Platform will be held from 20-21 November 2019 in Brussels. In three thematic sessions during the first day, innovations in the fields of renewable fuels and bioenergy, opportunities and challenges with respect to broadening the biomass feedstock base in Europe as well as the future role of ETIP Bioenergy and options how you can get involved in the platform will be discussed with the audience.

The second day takes a bird´s eye view on the contribution of advanced renewable transport fuels to the decarbonisation of transport in 2030 and beyond, technological options, implementation barriers, and financial instruments.

The Stakeholder Plenary Meeting provides a forum for political representatives, research institutes, and companies from the bioenergy sector to discuss jointly about the future of biofuels and bioenergy in Europe.

Registration to the SPM is free of charge; however, places are limited by the capacity of the venue. Please inform us at your earliest convenience via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you subsequently need to cancel your registration.
