Registration open for Global Biobased Businessplan Competition (G-BiB)

The Global Biobased Businessplan Competition (G-BiB) is a competition for students in the United Kingdom, Finland and Germany. The objective of G-BiB is to stimulate entrepreneurship and innovation developing a bio-renewable chemical, material and/or fuel product.

The G-BiB is an initiative of the BioInnovation Growth mega-Cluster (BIG-Cluster).


The G-BiB is a competition open for teams of 2-6 Bachelor, Master and/or PhD students from universities and universities of applied science in the United Kingdom, Finland and Germany. All teams must announce a mentor from their university.

Challenge and Procedure

The challenge is to create a pitch deck based on a design for sustainable production of bio-renewable products such as biofuels and biomaterials or partial solutions that will support developing those products. You will get to know the other teams during a joint kick-off event in October 2020 and get support in writing your pitch deck during a masterclass held in the UK, Finland and Germany. National semi-finals will announce one national winner that will participate in the transnational final held in February 2021 during the CLIB International Conference. The winning team will get a financial award to further develop their business idea.


Please read the regulations and additional information on the G-BiB for all terms and conditions. They can be downloaded
