The great work undertaken by the Phoenix project during the last years has been recognised in a brochure on Croatian Success Stories in the framework of R&I funding opportunities under Horizon 2020 for the period 2014-2020 by the EC, the Ministry of Science and Education of Croatia, and the Agency for Mobility and EU Programmes.
In line with the EU objectives to adopt renewable and sustainable forms of energy, Phoenix tackles the main gaps in the bioenergy sector since its start in 2015. The project supports the development of qualified people in this sector by promoting early-stage researchers (ESR) and experienced researchers (ER) careers. The exchanges organised between industry and academic partners seek to find solutions for current energy challenges, such as the development of non-conventional resources that can be applied at many different levels.
Among its 14 European partners and one Third-Country partner, the EC project counts with two Croatian organisations contributing and benefiting from ESRs and ERs exchanges on bioresources and bioenergy, the Faculty of Food Technology and Biotechnology and the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture of the University of Zagreb.
