The project ran between July 2017 and October 2021.

A transition to a bio-based economy that also increases Sweden’s innovation ability requires working together in new ways. The BioInnovation innovation project BioComposites contributed to Sweden’s and EU’s climate and sustainability goals by fostering the leap from small-scale investigation to successful large-scale demonstration of bio-based composites. This was achieved by producing industrially relevant demonstrators using the new biocomposites having a performance tailored to different market applications. In all, 20 of the 24 partners in the subprojects represented industry. Demonstrators included paper-based bottles, high-performance bio-based sheet moulded compounds for vehicle components, novel prosthetics and accessories, and compression-moulded furniture and interiors components. The exploration of how new materials are experienced was especially important for furniture and interior design as well as for prosthetics and accessories. The Circularity and Coordination project contributed with a framework for circular business models and assessing the contribution to the UN sustainable goals.

The project consisted of four sub-projects:


The consortium of the innovation project consisted of 24 actors in total from universities, institutes, and companies.


The project’s budget was 1,2 MSEK.
