  • Organizing, in Nov. 2019, an international bioeconomy conference in Toulouse, sustbioeco ( It featured 2 researchers of the Web of Science highly cited researchers list of 2019 and an IPCC author, among others.
  • Securing a H2020 project (NEGEM, call LC-CLA-02-2019 on Negative Emission Technologies) to start in 2020 (140,000€), highly related to Cambioscop. It involves top European institutions such as University of Cambridge, Oxford University, Potsdam Institute for Climate (PIK), Imperial College London, ETH-Zurich, the Finnish VTT and accordingly top-level climate researchers. A postdoc will be employed for 19 months, starting 2020.
  • Receiving the Mourou-Strickland Mobility Grant of the French Embassy in Canada (~3,000€). Mobility performed in August 2019 at University of Waterloo (School of Environment, Enterprise and Development ). The Cambioscop project was presented there.

  • Invited by the Occitanie Region to contribute to the second edition of its “Forum Economie Circulaire”, which Cambioscop did through a 200 s video:
  • Receiving a PhD student (Mrs. Concetta Lodato; DTU, Denmark) for her 3-months external research stay. She worked on a (French) regional bioeconomy case study relevant to (and incorporated within) the Cambioscop project.
