The Czech Biomass Association (CZ Biom) is the Czech Republic’s biggest professional organisation engaged in the issue of using biomass in all its forms as an energy source.

CZ Biom is active as the lead partner of individual work packages in the areas of  research and development and dissemination projects at the national and European level. Every year the association is a partner of several projects.

Currently Czech Biomass Association is searching for project partners for the new framework programme for research and innovation – Horizon 2020.
