3BCAR :  Bioenergy, Biobased molecules and materials from renewable carbon

3BCAR is an organized research network of units working in the field of transformation of biomass into Bioenergies, BioBased materials and molecules (3 B of the renewable carbon) network.


Supported by INRA (the french national research institute in agronomy) and seven historic partners who have signed Scientific Interest Group contract together, 3BCAR aims to develop research partnerships with companies in order to promote the development of innovation, technology transfer and the public-private partnership.


A scientific and organizational approach is proposed :


>>>> A one stop shop organization for access to the skills of researchers,


>>>> A Simplified contractual process to ensure traceability, reliability and speed in the processing of contracts and their development contracting.
