1. What does “multi-actor approach” mean in several topics included in the SC2 work programme 2014-2015?

The definition of MMA is highlights in the footnote n.1 at pag 4 of the WP 2014-2015. The MMA aim at involving end users including farmers, fishers, consumers, public authorities (including at local and regional levels) and society at large in all the phases of your proposal. It will be a key point to achieve during the cicle of life of your project.

Here below the EC definition: “The multi-actor approach aims at more demand-driven innovation through the genuine and sufficient involvement of various actors (end-users such as farmers/farmers' groups, fishers/fisher's groups, advisors, enterprises, etc.) all along the project: from the participation in the planning of work and experiments, their execution up until the dissemination of results and the possible demonstration phase. The adequate choice of key actors with complementary types of knowledge (scientific and practical) should be reflected in the description of the project proposals and result in a broad implementation of project results. The multi-actor approach is more than a strong dissemination requirement or what a broad stakeholders' board can deliver: it should be illustrated with sufficient quantity and quality of knowledge exchange activities and a clear role for the different actors in the work. This should generate innovative solutions that are more likely to be applied thanks to the cross-fertilisation of ideas between actors, the co-creation and the generation of co-ownership for eventual results. A multi-actor project needs to take into account how the project proposal's objectives and planning are targeted to needs / problems and opportunities of end-users, and the complementarity with existing research. Facilitation between actors and openness to involve additional actors/groups of actors during the project, for instance relevant EIP operational groups, are strongly recommended”.

2. Why does the WP 2014 -2015 include few topics on Bio Based industries?

Most activities related to sustainable and competitive bio-based industries as defined in the Horizon 2020 Specific Programme will be implemented through the Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) on Bio-based Industries. Activities proposed in the current call are complementary to those undertaken by the JTI, and target the supply side of the biomass to bioproducts value chain through the development of innovative feedstocks, research and innovation on next generation bio-refineries using CO2 as direct feedstock, and supporting markets for bio-based products.
