Since 2009, the funding programme/area "Biomass energy use" has been scientifically supported by the support team with the aim of networking and knowledge transfer. Since 2016 the programme is part of the Research Network Bioenergy. The support team sees itself as an independent forum and represents the entire Research Network "Bioenergy". It thus forms an interface between key players from science, business, politics and the multipliers.
We support all projects involved in the network in particular through:
and serves as a general contact for network participants and interested parties. Its own website, publications, press work, topic-specific workshops and regular status conferences are among the numerous publicity activities in the research network. The support team initiates networking activities and makes the work of the projects accessible to a broad public.
What is not part of the tasks?
The support team is not involved in the funding advice for outlines and applications, including the evaluation and selection process, as well as the technical and administrative handling of the projects. The project management organisation Jülich (PtJ) is exclusively responsible for this on behalf of the BMWi.
