Stakeholder Workshop - Survey Questions
The ISOBIO project offers a radical approach to natural construction materials at scale – delivering significant social, environmental and financial benefits.

ISOBIO will develop novel bio-based insulation materials for use in new and retrofit construction, which have added functionality allowing them to be readily adopted at industrial scale.
For more details please refer to the project website (

A key component in the success of the ISOBIO project is successful engagement with stakeholders at all levels. This will be achieved through a survey of needs and interests and a series of stakeholder workshops scheduled to align with the developments and progression of the ISOBIO project aims.

We therefore would like to kindly ask you to take part in this survey. Your responses are key to the successful engagement of stakeholders within the ISOBIO project, and in setting the agenda for the workshops. To complete the survey, please click on the “survey” button below.


We hope you will be able to attend the ISOBIO ‘Environmental and LCA considerations in the production of bio-based insulation’ stakeholder workshop, aimed at Industry professionals, on Wednesday 14th September 2016 at the University of Bath. The outline of the agenda is as follows:
• Introduction to ISOBIO Project
• Aims of project
• LCA - Preliminary results
• Future directions

Please supply your details at the end of the survey in order to register your interest in attending the workshop.

The remaining three stakeholder workshops will cover the themes of skills and standards (aimed at the supply chain), solutions and markets (aimed at industry and end users) and policy and lessons learnt (aimed at EU actors, policy makers and European associations).
