About MPowerBIO

MPowerBIO is a 30-month project that has received funding from the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI-JU) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 887501.

MPowerBIO aims to systematically empower SME clusters across Europe to build links with investors and self-sustainably raise awareness and improve the investment readiness and pitching skills of their SME members. A capacity building programme for 90 SME clusters (i.e. train-the-trainers events throughout Europe) will be designed, addressing any knowledge and skills gaps that may impede SME clusters to better address their members’ needs.
