Resume: It is a compilation of the I International Congress on Biorefineriesand Renewable Energies Supported by ICT proceedings, organised by Universidad Cooperativa de Colombia from 17 to 20 September 2018. Its objective was identifying solutions based on the capabilities and technologies developed by universities, industry or national and international governments, for the country’s and the global energy challenges, with special attention to those framed in the United Nations’ sustainable development goals (SDGS). Its target audiences were academic researchers, industry and government offices related to renewable energy, biorefineries and ICTs.
Abstract: The Universidad Cooperativa de Colombia (UCC) has offices in 18 cities, a considerable portion of the country’s territory and is thus a key player in the transfer of knowledge and technology. International cooperation with the COST network (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) has helped financially to carry out research and innovation projects in various topics. Currently, the ucc is part of the FP1306 Action under the project entitled “Valorisation of Lignocellulosic Biomass Side Streams for Sustainable Production of Chemicals, Materials and Fuels using Technologies with Low Environmental Impact”. This action aims to develop a solid European multidisciplinary network able to provide a range of innovative alternatives for the transformation and valorisation of lignocellulosic residues into chemicals, fuels and materials by making use of environmentally sound protocols consisting of pre-treatment/fractionation and conversion to valuable end products. The alliance between UCC, COST Network, UK Researcher Links and ELAN (European and Latin American Technology based Business Network), targets the formulation and execution of energy projects supported by smart grids, research and academic capacity building. However, despite the strength of the alliance, a gap persists regarding the use and appropriation of these technologies in national business, government and academic sectors in terms of knowledge generation and transfer on biorefineries, and alternative and renewable energies based on ICTs. For this reason, the first International Congress on Biorefineries and Renewable Energies Supported by ICTs (BRESICT) seeks to identify and create alliance opportunities and collaborative work between the different stakeholders of the technological innovation sector.
