European Technology and Innovation Platform



Elections of the Steering Committee of Biomass Technology Panel

Call for candidates!

The two years status of the current Steering Committee of the Biomass Technology Panel is ending, and a new steering committee will be elected in September 2018. Therefore, the Biomass Secretariat invites the interested members to present their candidacy to the election of the steering committee of the biomass panel.

The continuation and focus of the platform's activities on biomass will be guided by the Steering Committee in the direction it sees, hence if you have an opinion on future research topics, this is a platform through which you can get your voice heard! Besides, as a member of the Steering Committee you will be more closely informed about the RHC-ETIP activities.

The Steering Committee can hold up to 20 members, and it is led by the president and two vice-presidents who represent the Biomass Technology Panel in the RHC-ETIP board. The members of the Steering Committee will hold their terms for 2 years. The current steering committee members may also re-apply.
