BRISK2’s main activity is to fund researchers to access biological and thermal biomass conversion facilities across Europe. Since BRISK2 launched in 2017, access has been granted to more than 100 researchers from 30 countries (October 2019).
Funded by European Horizon 2020, BRISK2 aims to improve the success of biofuels implementation by:
- Helping to consolidate bioenergy expertise & knowledge
- Providing opportunities for international collaboration
- Fostering a culture of co-operation
- Leading to new bioenergy research activities across Europe.
BRISK2 launched in 2017 and follows in the footsteps of the first Biofuels Research Infrastructure for Sharing Knowledge, which ran from 2011 until completion in 2015. It funded hundreds of research visits across Europe. BRISK was focused on thermal conversion research projects, whereas BRISK2 has a broader scope, welcoming applications from any researcher or team of researchers working in biofuels, including biological conversion.
