Work Programme


KETBIO is split into 6 work packages, reflecting 5 overarching action lines including: 

  • SUPPORT: Providing innovation support to the biotech community (WP2)
  • CONNECT: Community building and networking (WP3 and 4)
  • LEARN: Science, market trends (WP5) and education and knowledge sharing (WP4)
  • INFORM: Showcasing and promoting results (WP6)
  • MONITOR: Project management (WP1).

Project Management

This work package spans the life time of the project and involves the monitoring of the project progress against set deliverables and overall project reporting to ensure KETBIO is on track. 

Path to Commercialisation

This work package aims to identify and screen EU funded KET biotechnology projects, followed by their value assessment through a panel of experts to ultimately reveal the ‘best of’ projects for the final showcase.

KETBIO Cluster

During this work package the KETBIO cluster will be initiated as a focal point for EU biotechnology projects and stakeholders. We aim to recruit a cohort of expert groups and establish an e-Academy within the KETBIO Cluster as a vehicle to drive knowledge exchange and sharing of best practice as well as mechanism to engage with the community for gap analysis and capture of needs and requirements. It will also include the set-up of online experts working groups representing the major topics of KET in biotechnology including: Industrial biotech, bio-refining, bio-based products, environmental, marine and freshwater biotech, emerging trends in biotechnologies and horizontal topics.  

KETBIO Cluster Activities

The focal point of this work package is the set-up of the E-Academy programme of live webinars (online seminars) and organisation of online/onsite partnering events for shared learning and fostering new relationships within the community.

Intelligence & Recommendations

During this work package we will review recent technological developments and gather information on business trends and markets within biotechnology to share with our community. 

Communication & Dissemination

This work package Includes promotional campaigns which will lead to the ultimate KETBIO Roadshow and Final KETBIO conference to showcase the commercial potential of EU funded Biotech projects.
