BIOCHEM was a EU-funded project aiming at improving the innovation capacity of bio-based chemistry start-ups and SMEs. Gate2Growth was a partner in the BIOCHEM project.
BIOCHEM provided a business support toolbox for entrepreneurs in order to assess their potential to enter the bio-based products market and to overcome their barriers to innovation.
The BIOCHEM tools were of a varied format: some were documents, some were links to relevant websites and others were on-line interactive tools. The different tools were tailored to the specific needs of companies already operating or interested in operating within the bio-based products sector. A partner in the BIOCHEM project guided interested organizations through the toolbox process.
The BIOCHEM Partnering Platform provided online services to build and enlarge the personal network of contacts within the European bio-based product community. The specific search engine was based on 3600 SMEs, industry organizations, universities and research facilities from all over Europe.
