BioPAD goes to Scotland!

BioPAD is having its third partner meeting in Scotland next week (25th -28th) and we are preparing for a busy week.

We’ll be doing a lot of travelling (mini bus and car ferry) to visit our cluster sites in Wick and Stornaway and will be back in Findhorn to hold our formal meeting.

We have a lot to cover and so there will be on-going discussions as we tour Scotland by mini bus.

Key things we hope to achieve are the finalisation of our dissemination strategy, agreement on the supply chain analysis and content, the BioPAD branding and logo and some basic parameters for our supply chain tool which is just starting development.

We’ll also be working the website content, agreeing our objectives for work on marine and our goals for work with policy makers.

We are hoping that we will also have some time to enjoy Scottish scenery and hospitality but we are not sure where that will fit in!


About biopadblog

Developing a local bioenergy market can provide significant opportunities for rural and remote areas, by improving security of energy supply, contributing to a reduction in CO2 emissions and stimulating the local economy by creating jobs and keeping payments for energy within the local community. A new project, BioPAD (Bioenergy Proliferation and Deployment), which targets the Northern Periphery of Europe, aims to ensure that bioenergy becomes more widely used and that awareness of the opportunities it provides are increased. The project will help the development of bioenergy and improve our understanding of the links between supply and demand by looking at supply chains for a variety of bioenergy fuels and different ways of converting these fuels into sustainable energy. Understanding the supply chains and the ways bioenergy moves from fuel source to energy provision will help the establishment of robust and efficient supply services which can match local demand. BioPAD is led by the Western Development Commission (Ireland) and is funded under the ERDF Interreg IVB Northern Periphery Programme (NPP)
