The day will be composed of keynotes, brief notes and a final roundtable. We also organize a pitch contest for young start-ups (to win: 50 k€ of TWB services !). This event is open to all biotech stakeholders.
Info and free registration & attendance are available here: http://www.toulouse-white-biotechnology.com/start-up-2018/
LCA analyses the potential environmental impacts associated with a product’s life cycle, from cradle to grave or parts of it. This can include raw material extraction, processing of raw materials, product manufacturing, distribution, use, maintenance and end of life options.
Nova is able to provide a Life-cycle assessment based on ISO 14040 and 14044 to evaluate the processes and product footsteps. They also are able to provide Life cycle Inventories and Meta-Analysis of already existing LCAs. Based on this and on a Hot Spot Analysis we are able to provide information for environmental process optimization.
If it is clear from the analysis in WP3 that the value chain will need more or different support (e.g. innovation inside the company, other service providers) than can be given in the frame of SUPERBIO, the ‘subsidy writing’ support service can help. This service ensures leverage of the SUPERBIO project on a longer term and even after the project has ended. Patergrus/Biotechsubsidy is specialised in grant management services. They are strong in identifying the right grant schemes for a particular project or for a particular project portfolio. Once an ideal project/grant combination is identified for a particular SME, Biotechsubsidy forms a tight team with the key scientists and business developers of the project to develop the scientific and business strategy. This team adapts the existing projects towards the exact scope of the grant and optimizes the project such that is has optimal chances to be selected for funding. If judged to be relevant, Biotechsubsidy is also willing to perform the administrative project management of the funded project.

Within the new bio- and CO2-based economy, market conditions change faster than in traditional markets. To achieve the successful commercialisation of your product, you need a good understanding of the environment you are working in and the customer you are seeking to sell your product to. BCNP, NNFCC and the nova Institute can help you answer those strategic questions. We can undertake market landscape reviews determining market size for a given application, its geographical breakdown, product value by application and competing product developers. This data, collected through our large industry network, can be used to identify new potential customers and customer requirements, ultimately strengthening your business case. Stakeholder mapping exercises can be performed to provide insight into key actors with relevant value chains, supply chains or innovation chains, to identify competitors and potential collaborators. We also offer strategic market reviews covering PESTLE considerations, as a basis for assessing likely trends. This can be complemented by a SWOT analysis to provide robust recommendations for future business actions.

A techno-economic analysis (TEA) enables well-informed decision-making that makes your company fit for the future. Technology and economic appraisals come in the form of technology landscaping exercises. The exercise assesses the ability and potential of a range of available technologies to achieve a desired output, normally with a pro and con analysis to identify the most promising opportunities. Coupling this with an economic appraisal provides you with, not only the right technical choice, but also a suite of options as to how a specific biomass transformation can be carried out in the most cost-effective manner (i.e. CAPEX and OPEX costs linked to a specific technology, potential revenues streams, the added value of the products in a particular market).
BCNP's access to investor service helps you to find the equity capital for implementing your business idea. We will support you in optimizing your investor documents to maximize your chances to be funded. We will present your idea to international investors and will connect you to them. You benefit from our experience in approaching investors and our large network of investors.

Today, more than ever, innovation is at the heart of a business’ future. Intellectual property rights (IPRs) are fundamental to securing that future, and your market share. GJE’s Innovation Capture Session (ICS) provides a strategy and practical guidance designed to protect and leverage your ideas in line with your business plan. In discussion with you, the ICS will uncover new innovations within your company and establish their importance in the context of your commercial objectives. Potentially patentable innovation can then be protected with a patent application, which GJE will draft and file for you. If you have existing IPRs then GJE’s IP Audit will map them to your products and services, identifying any gaps or redundant IPRs, allowing the development of a more practical, relevant and cost-effective IP strategy. These are just some of the IP services that GJE offer. So if you would like to discuss how IPRs can be used to secure the future of your business get in touch with GJE.

BBEPP is a flexible and diversified pilot plant for the development and up-scaling of new, bio-based processes. It is capable of scaling up and optimizing a broad variety of bio-based processes up to an industrial level. Companies we worked with testify that they were about 1 to 2 years faster to the market, at a substantially reduced cost, and with an improved process compared to scaling-up on their own. The scale-up results enabled the companies to convince new customers and investors.

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is the most reliable method to identify environmental issues within a process and verify claims of sustainability advantages. It identifies hot spots in processes, materials and products, providing a benchmark against which improvements can be measured. It provides transparent and reliable data in comparison to other products, enabling producers, providers and customers, to make well informed decisions.
