FUNDING BIOFUELS RESEARCHERS
JOINT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
15 PROJECT PARTNERS
Boost your biofuels research with one of our 15 project partners
Funded by EU Horizon 2020, BRISK2 aims to improve the success of international biofuels research and implementation.
BRISK2’s main activity is to provide researchers from around the world with access to biological and thermal biomass conversion facilities across Europe by facilitating Transnational Access (TA).
Eligible researchers can apply to utilise the unique facilities and expertise of any BRISK2 research partner outside of their home country. Funding is available for short-term experimental research visits, along with a capped grant for travel, accommodation and subsistence.
Applications are invited year round and are pooled for assessment twice a year in April and October. Individuals or groups of researchers at any stage in their career from industry and academia are welcome to enquire.
The next call closes 1st April 2020.
