    Place: Brussels, Belgium

    The emerging bioeconomy is moving from research niche to market norm and Europe needs to maintain its current global leadership.

    The conference will focus on the need to have a sustainable and circular bioeconomy to enhance the transition in a changed EU policy context and towards a new environmental, social and economic reality. It will also set the scene for the start of the discussion about synergetic actions across different priority areas:

    • support strategic research and innovation, and strengthen support for education and training,
    • upscale the bio-based sectors, mobilise investments, support the creation of markets, develop better monitoring,
    • encourage the adoption, update and coherence of national and regional Bioeconomy Strategies throughout Europe with citizens engagement,
    • strengthen the understanding and resilience of land and sea ecosystems,
    • monitoring and assessment of bioeconomy development

    During the event, a  bioeconomy corner will showcase tangible bio-based products

    Come and meet the Blue Bioeconomy Forum team! We will be present at this event, and it will be the occasion to share with you our latest work.
