The partnering tool helps you to find research cooperation possibilities between German institutions and institutions from non-European countries within the open Bioeconomy International Call 2016. It can be used in the following ways:
Please post an entry in the partnering tool, if you are looking for collaboration opportunities in project consortia and would like to offer your expertise. You are also welcome to make a post, if you already have a project idea and are looking for further partners that would like to join you/your consortium.
Next to providing your contact details, you should give a brief description of your organization. It is important that you provide some key words describing your field of research/innovation and that you specify your interest and the experience, expertise and know-how you/your organization has to offer in relation to one of the listed fields of action of the National Research Strategy Bioeconomy 2030. In order to guarantee fields of action specific posts, selection is limited to one field per offer. If more than one field suit your interest and expertise, you will have to make several posts.
The database can be searched by fields of action, keywords and all the other information provided by its users.
- For German-Russian research consortia (Module 2: Bio-Ger/Rus) only the following topics are eligible:
If you are interested in more than one topic, you must create an entry for each topic separately.
There will be a plausibility check by the call office for each of your entries. If the information given passes this plausibility check, your request(s) will be published on the page "List of Partner Offers/Requests". Following the publication, all information provided by you will be publicly available.
Please also be aware that the following topics are ineligible for the German-Russian module 2 and will be excluded:
- Development of new and improved biocatalysts (enzymes, cells) and microbial strains for innovative and more efficient bioprocesses by e.g. metabolic engineering, synthetic and systems biology approaches, directed evolution technologies and/or exploiting natural biodiversity
- Innovative fermentation and integrated biocatalytic processes including bioprocess engineering for platform chemicals, biomonomers, biopolymers, bioproducts for agro and food and feed industry and second generation and advanced biofules
- Biotechnological processing (including strain development, separation and conversion) of different carbon sources like biomass, syngas and various side streams into value added products
- Sustainable and integrated utilization of biomass in bio-refinery concepts
- Development of novel, unique-performance biobased products
- Waste (agricultural, industrial, municipal) valorization via biotechnology means
- First generation biofuels utilizing food crops
- Biopharma, biomedicine and other related “red” biotechnologies
- Agricultural biotechnologies if not directly relevant to the scope of the call
- Marine biotechnologies if not directly relevant to the scope of the call
- Bioinformatics, omic technologies, etc. if not directly relevant to the scope of the call
- Environmental issues like e.g. water and air purification, soil remediation etc.
