ALIGNED, part of the GRETE Network

We have been invited by the GRETE project to join their Networking space. This project is focused on developing innovative technologies for the first part of the wood-to-textile value chain.

As part of this network, stakeholders involved in textile and biobased industries can be connected and share their expertise and experience from other similar initiatives. It is a platform for knowledge sharing and discussions, that facilitates the identification of synergies and fosters exploitation activities.


Consultation rounds – we want to hear from you

The ALIGNED project is excited to announce a new section on our website dedicated to gaining further insights into the five bio-based sectors within our project: construction, woodworking, textiles, pulp and paper, and biochemicals.

To ensure that our project accurately represents and benefits each sector, we will be holding sector consultations. These consultations give representatives from these five sectors the opportunity to have a direct impact on the shape of the ALIGNED project by sharing their knowledge and experience.

Specifically, the consultations will focus on environmental assessments, particularly on Life Cycle Assessments (LCA), and how they apply to the whole sector. This information will be used to create fitting recommendations for each sector.

For each of the five sectors, there will be two consultation rounds. The first round will be held near the start of our project to gather information and input from the sector, and the second round will be held near the end of the project to give the sector the opportunity to comment on and value our results.

We encourage representatives from the construction, woodworking, textiles, pulp and paper, and biochemicals sectors to participate in these consultations and help shape the future of our project.

Please visit our new section for more information and to participate in the sector consultation that applies to you. Together, we can create a sustainable future for our bio-based sectors.


The European Bioeconomy Network welcomes ALIGNED

ALIGNED has joined the European Bioeconomy Network (EuBioNet) an alliance of more than 100 projects and initiatives dealing with Bioeconomy promotion, communication and support. The main goal is to maximise the efforts, increasing knowledge sharing, networking, mutual learning, and coordination of joint activities and events.

Our project expects to benefit from the mutual promotion of outcomes, new partnerships, joint event planning and knowledge sharing.

LCA network

ALIGNED present in the Prospective LCA network

Our project coordinator, Aalborg University, had the chance to present the ALIGNED project in the “Prospective LCA network” initiative.

As part of this initiative, between 6-8 researchers are closely working within the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) field and organise online seminars (quarterly) about this topic. During the last seminar on November 7, Massimo Pizzol (Life Cycle Assessment researcher and teacher) introduced the ALIGNED project to more than 70 attendees and invited them to follow the project on social media channels.

The presentation used in the seminar can be found here.


The ALIGNED project kicks off with a meeting in AALBORG (Denmark)

On October 26 and 27, consortium partners had the opportunity to meet for the first time in person in Aalborg, Denmark.

Our project coordinator, Aalborg University, welcomed partners for two days of fruitful discussions on the first activities and actions that will be taking place in the upcoming semester, with a special focus on project management, first communication actions, upcoming webinars/workshops and the engagement of stakeholders from the different sectors.

Partners are excited to start working on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and its application to assess and promote sustainability in the targeted bio-based industries: construction, woodworking, textile, pulp and paper, and bio-chemicals.
