About TIP

The purpose of SYMBIOMA Technology Innovation Platform (TIP) is to provide food industry waste biomass valorisation related business development and technology development services. This website lists SYMBIOMA TIP open access services and their providers.


Service providers are located in remote regions of Northern European countries and therefore are accessible also for industries which have limited connections to more central research communities. 


Using TIP services will enable industry to: 

  • Successfully identify new products or intermediates from process waste or side streams.
  • To adopt circular business models.
  • To form new resource-efficient value chains.

TIP also serves as an alliance between research organisations, reinforcing their cooperation and development of new knowledge and services for the industry. 

TIP is the outcome of the SYMBIOMA project, which is financed by Interreg Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme. The project aims to provide micro, small and medium-sized enterprises in remote and sparsely populated EU areas with services to employ circular economy models for improved resource efficiency, new business development and to ensure the economic and environmental sustainability of those regions.


SYMBIOMA services has been built to link companies with service providers.
