20 funding organisations from 15 countries/regions were involved in this call. The total available budget was approx. 16 million €. The application process consisted of two separate and consecutive steps: Pre-Proposal and full proposal.
In January 2017, FACCE SURPLUS launched a second call for transnational research projects on "Small scale Biorefineries". The deadline for the submission of pre-proposals was March 7, 2017.
The deadline for full proposal submission was July 17, 2017.
In December 2017, eight projects were selected to receive funding in the frame of the FACCE SURPLUS ERA-NET 2nd call.
Based on the two previous calls, the FACCE SURPLUS partners (listed above) decided in 2018 to further advance their successful funding scheme with a third call in order to complete the portfolio of projects and fill remaining research gaps.
In November 2019 six projects were selected for funding.
