Bioenergy NoE makes waves at world's biggest bioenergy conference
The 15th European Biomass and Bioenergy Conference held last week in Berlin attracted over 1300 scientists, policy makers and industrialists from around the world. Thirty Bioenergy NoE researchers attended the event, giving 25 oral presentations and contributing 30 scientific posters.
Bioenergy NoE Board Member Tony Bridgwater was awarded the prestigous Johannes Linneborn prize for his outstanding contribution to the bioenergy field. Ralph Overend lauded Professor Bridgwater's work on fast pyrolysis and thermo-chemical conversion technologies. He also praised Professor Bridgwater's ability to foster worldwide bioenergy collaboration in the field through his organisation of conferences, joint projects and networks throughout his career.
Bioenergy NoE's Spreading of Excellence Work Package organised the first ever Universities stand at the Exhibition to promote opportunities for advanced education and training in Europe.
"We had a high level of interest from students, professors and other academics looking for courses, best practices and further information on study opportunities and continuing education in bioenergy," said Crystal Luxmore, who organised the Stand.
A special edition of the Bioenergy NoE newsletter was distributed at the conference and can be downloaded from the Publications section of this website.
