On September 9th 2008, the Austrian representative of IEA Bioenergy Task 39 organised a national workshop on Transport Biofuels Research in Austria. This meeting was hosted by the Austrian mineral oil company OMV AG.
The goal of the workshop was to give an overview on Austrian R&D transport biofuel research activities, identify synergies between Austrian transport biofuels RD&D networks and to give recommendations for further research. The participants were the Austrian representatives of biofuel-related IEA Bioenergy Tasks (29, 33, 34, 37, 38, 39, 40, and 42), representatives of the Ministry for Traffic, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) and of the Ministry for Agriculture, Forestry, Water Management and the Environment (BMLFUW), Austrian representatives of the IEA AMFA and the European Biofuel Technology Platform (Austrian Mirror Group), representatives of other governmental and funding organisations, and scientists. In total, 24 presentations were held. With a total of 59 participants and a very broad program this workshop was a full success.
