Bioeconfin 2017
Are you working on innovation in bioeconomy? Having trouble finding funding to get your innovation off the ground? Looking for ways to help your innovation enter the market or for support in realising your innovative idea?

PNO Consultants is a key partner in innovation and finance in every phase of the innovation process. In November we gather the top innovators in bioeconomy for a 'Financing the Bioeconomy Innovations' event - BIOECONFIN 2017. The event will cover the topic of innovation development, project financing and funding, bioeconomy networks and trends, and European vision for bioeconomy.

And that is not all! BIOECONFIN also offers a free possibility for a 1-on-1 meeting with one of the bioeconomy experts, whom you can ask for advice on how to advance your project.
