Collaboration workshop between IEA Bioenergy TCP Task 40, 42, 43, 44, 45 and the Horizon 2020 BRANCHES project.

An intertask working group (BioSyn) was initiated following up on the discussions at the IEA Bioenergy Task 43 and BioEast Initiative Workshop (10 Oct 2019) and the IEA Bioenergy Conference 2021 session on biomass mobilization (30 Nov 2021). The working group set out to further explore possible overlapping research questions, especially concerning small to medium scale Bioeconomy enterprises (SMBEs), mobilizing low-value, heterogeneous biomass while providing benefits to regional communities.

To reflect on the findings of the BioSyn working group and to gather the perspectives from other related Tasks and experts of the IEA Bioenergy community, all “strategic” (as opposed to technical) IEA Bioenergy Tasks (Tasks 40, 42, 43, 44 and 45) agreed to participate in a joint online workshop on 2022 November 2nd.
