Analysis and opportunities of Public Private Partnerships and other European initiatives

PNO Consultants will invite the guests of the session to follow together an hands-on approach to the specific opportunities at hand, focusing on de-risking capital investments and de-costing innovative operations while tackling the full scope of the specific challenges and expect impact at hand. More specifically:

-Analyse specific call for projects available in 2018, with a special focus on BBI JU and LIFE
Filippo GIANCARLO MARTINELLI – Consultant & GA Pipeline Manager – PNO Consultants (Belgium)

- Clarification of the expectations of the BBI JU (European Commission / BioBased Industries Joint Undertaking) in the work program, alignment with societal challenges and new BBI SIRA
Philippe MENGAL – Executive Director - Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (Belgium)

- How to set up a successful EU proposal and secure the grant without committing one-self to deliver the impossible
Filippo GIANCARLO MARTINELLI – Consultant & GA Pipeline Manager – PNO Consultants (Belgium)

- Showcasing a successful BBI Project 

Key concept of the event is providing the right mixture of public information, in house expertise and concreate opportunities, building much beyond the classic concept of “info day”, thanks to the business friendly environment and technology focus of the event.
