The ScienceCampus Halle will invest 1.2 million euros in pioneering bioeconomy research

Press Release – Halle (Saale), 15/03/2018: The board of directors at the ScienceCampus Halle (WCH) will grant funding to joint research projects for the third time. A total of five projects will receive a total of 1.2 million euros in funding. The projects eligible for funding are in the areas of primary production and conversion. The projects will start in early 2019 at the latest and will help advance bioeconomy research in Saxony-Anhalt.

Continuing to promote what has been tried and tested

The WCH is already into its third round of funding. Currently seven very promising projects are underway as part of the second round of funding. The new application-oriented research projects are also joint projects. To be considered a joint research project, they must include at least two WCH members from Saxony-Anhalt and one industrial partner. This strategy moves the WCH closer to its goal of intensifying interdisciplinary cooperation between regional partners. At regular intervals the WCH tenders projects in the areas of plant production, processing and conversion, as well as social economics.
When selecting the joint projects, the WCH looks at a range of different criteria, including interdisciplinary research, an innovative research plan with application potential, a high relevance for economic utilization, and the involvement of economic partners.

Research in an international framework

The ScienceCampus Halle realizes the necessity of research funding because it recognizes the chances it entails - funding is always an investment in the future. This is why research funding is also one of the main aspects of the 7th International Bioeconomy Conference entitled “Bio meets Economy – Science meets Industry”. The conference will once again be hosted by the ScienceCampus Halle and the BioEconomy Cluster Central Germany. It will take place at the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina in Halle an der Saale on June 6 – 7, 2018. It is one of the most important annual bioeconomy events in the country and is a gathering place for numerous renowned bioeconomy scientists and stakeholders, as well as representatives from the world of politics. The conference provides an overview of the opportunities and potentials of the bioeconomy, particularly in the region of Central Germany. Here funding possibilities are presented alongside renowned research.

The 7th International Bioeconomy Conference is jointly organized by the ScienceCampus Halle and the BioEconomy Cluster and will take place on June 6 – 7, 2018 at the Leopoldina in Halle. Registration and the conference program can be found at:

The ScienceCampus Halle – plant-based bioeconomy and the Cluster BioEconomy are two associations whose stakeholders are working on the basics of the bio-based economy. Both not only are situated in the German Federal State Saxony-Anhalt, but are direct neighbors on the WeinbergCampus of the city of Halle/Saale.
