On October 2, the Supervisory Board of the Zukunftsagentur has awarded another 20 projects with the second of three stars. This means that a total of 39 projects have now been awarded with the title as “Tragfähiges Vorhaben”.
Among the projects are some of the field of bioeconomy, such as the “Bio4MatPro” project.
