PRESENTATION OF THE BIOMASS SECTOR STRATEGIC RESEARCH AGENDA

Presentación de la Agenda Estratégica de Investigación en el Sector de la Biomasa

The main representatives of the biomass sector met yesterday in Pamplona during the presentation of the Biomass Sector Strategic Research Agenda. This Agenda is framed within the second phase of the European project, BIOCLUS, which will end in 2012 and whose aim is to define the strategic lines that research, development and innovation in the biomass sector in the Autonomous Community of Navarra must be based upon.

The work carried out is the result of an in-depth analysis of the baseline situation of the biomass sector in Navarra, as well as of its strengths and weaknesses, both from the technical and economic viewpoint and from the research, development and innovation viewpoint.

The content of this Strategic Agenda has been prepared with the coordination of the Directorate General for Environment and Water of the Department of Rural Development and Environment, the Directorate General for Enterprise of the Department of Innovation, Enterprise and Employment, and private companies from the sector, BIOTERNA and the National Renewable Energy Centre (CENER), which is the general coordinator of the project.

Likewise, the development of alliances between Navarra and other European regions is considered a priority objective, so that Navarra will continue to be a leader in the renewable energy sector in Europe. It must not be forgotten that, in 2009, Navarra covered 81% of its electrical consumption with renewables, thus exceeding the European objectives set for 2010.

The main objectives of BIOCLUS are to drive regional competitiveness, to strengthen and manage innovation and to enhance the research potential in the biomass sector. 20 partners from five European regions are taking part: Central Finland, Navarra, Western Macedonia (Greece), Slovaquia and Wielkopolska (Poland).

The BIOPLUS Project is financed by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union, within the “Regions of Knowledge” Initiative FP7/245438. It has a budget of 3.6 million euros, for the three year period (2010 to 2012) and EU financing of 2.8 million euros. The Navarra partners participate in the project budget with 500,000 euros.
