Regional joint action plans are published PDF Print E-mail

Joint action plans (JAP) are defining the activities that are needed to achieve the targets set in the strategic research agenda (SRA) of the same region. The strategic research agenda aims to orientate and strengthen research activities and capacity building in the selected research fields related to sustainable use of biomass. Strategic research agenda introduces the fields of knowledge in which the regions already have strategic research competence and experience or in which research-driven clusters of BIOCLUS regions wish to develop further.


Joint action plans (JAPs) and Srategic research agandas (SRAs) are available in BIOCLUS publications in regional publications.
