This paper presents a new European initiative, the uP_running project, which aims to set the path for the development of the bioenergy utilisation of agrarian pruning and plantation removal (APPR). These woody residues are not being used currently, although they present a high potential in the European Union due to a large cultivated area of vineyards, olive groves and fruit tree plantations. uP_running vocation is the abatement of the current immobility of the value chain actors for the utilization of APPR woody biomass. For that purpose, this project incorporates a set of straight actions aimed to reshape the sectors perception, to provide evidences of real success and replicable models to follow, as well as create a permanent capacity in Europe to give support for decision making to farmers, cooperatives and agro-industries. Moreover, an impact on policy barriers and on the legal framework currently setting limits for the utilisation of APPR wood will be carried out through direct advocacy and lobbying work at national and EU level. Setting up and running new APPR biomass value chains is the key for a self-replication and to further contribute to the development of the bio-economy in Europe. The actions will be initiated in a set of 4 "demo" countries (that together account for 50% of EU potential), replicated in 3 relevant EU countries, and extended through precursor actions to 7 additional EU countries.
