The EnzOx2 Project is a Research & Innovation Action funded by the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking,
a Public-Private Partnership between the EU (under H2020 framework programme) and the Bio-based Industries Consortium. Twelve participants from five European countries will join efforts for the sustainable production of chemical building blocks and other added value products from plant biomass using enzymatic technologies.
