What are the stages of the Open call?

15th December 2022: Open Call starting date

30th April 2023: First cut-off date: Final submission of test case proposals for preliminary evaluation. Inadequate or incomplete proposals may submit corrections until the final cut-off.

15th June 2023: Final cut-off date: Last day for submission of test case proposals. No corrections or amendments possible after this date.

The selected test cases will be implemented by the BIOMAC consortium from September 2023 to December 2024.

Applicants will liaise with BIOMAC’s single entry point (SEP) constituted by the Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH (IBB). A call for Innovation Concepts will be designed based on questionnaires filled in by the applicants. All the members of the OITB will participate to cover all aspects of innovation.

The main selection parameters will be the proof of TRL 4-5 of the applicants’ cases, the feasibility study and the complexity of the test cases. Another aspect is that all 17 PLs must be utilized during the implementation of the open call test cases.

Online presentation of the open call will be streamed on the 14th December. Stay tuned for more details.
