Événement à la une
Du 30.01.2024 au 01.02.2024
Du 30 janvier au 1er février 2024, aura lieu à Paris le rendez-vous européen des acteurs de l'hydrogène.
Successful proposals will support the bio-based industries and the enablers of the digital transition in the Union to contribute to the development of innovative and sustainable value-chains in the bio-based sectors. Projects’ results will contribute to deliver bio-based solutions with reduced environmental impacts on soil, water, and air quality, biodiversity and climate, in line with the EGD objectives, the EU circular economy action plan and its sustainable product initiative, the EU sustainable product initiativeand the proposal for the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation as well as the EU data strategy.
Projects results are expected to contribute to the following expected outcome:
An effective circular economy needs improved information of material flows used in all economic sectors. Information and data on products and services are key factors to improve their production’s sustainability and to meet the performance demands and needs of customers. Sharing data in an accessible and simple way, according to FAIR principles, to enable easy processing, can provide information back to the society, facilitating the inclusiveness of economic activities. Digital technologies can track and report the journeys of products, components and materials and make the resulting data securely access.
The circular economy action plan’s sustainable product initiative, the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation and the EU data strategy provide guidelines to build data and system architectures aiming at improving products sustainability, resources efficiency and circularity, among other goals.
To exploit the potential of digitalisation for the objectives of the EU circular economy in the bio-based sectors, proposal should:
Where relevant, proposals should seek links with and capitalise on the results of past and ongoing EU funded projects, including under the Circular Bio-based Europe JU.
This topic requires the effective contribution of SSH disciplines and the involvement of SSH experts, institutions as well as the inclusion of relevant SSH expertise, in order to produce meaningful and significant effects enhancing the societal impact of the related research activities. Moreover, the link between digitalisation and the resilience of economies to disruptions, such as the one suffered from COVID-19 crisis, should be part of the societal impacts assessment.
Specific Topic Conditions:
Activities are expected to achieve TRL 5 – see General Annex B.
