In the area of biotechnological approaches for biomaterials and bioenergy production and sustainable conversion of biowastes, SAHYOG will ensure wide-range networking of relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and establish linkages between on-going research and innovation projects from EU and India.

Thereby, SAHYOG will support the EU-India pilot initiative of the EU Strategic Forum for S&T International Cooperation (SFIC).

Main activities of the SAHYOG project include:

  • Elaboration of inventories on important research themes, as well as on existing research programmes and projects in the area of biomass and bio-waste.
  • Elaboration of a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) to facilitate concerted planning of future EU-India research initiatives.
  • Definition of a Roadmap identifying key RTD priorities for cooperation of stakeholders from Europe and India.
  • Twinning of projects from India and Europe in order to ensure exchange of information, data, materials and methods.
  • Short-term exchanges of junior and senior researchers for young talents and senior experts from India and Europe.
