The event is an appropriate moment not only to announce the outcomes of the review on the Bioeconomy strategy presented in a Staff Working Document, but also and discuss how to move the Bioeconomy forward.
The programme will include:
• a plenary session highlighting the outcome of the Staff Wording Document on the revue of the Bioeconomy strategy;
• video clips focus on innovations, new businesses, companies, social projects related to Bioeconomy;
• a presentation of the Bioeconomy Manifesto, setting out a societal agenda for Bioeconomy development;
• 9 parallel sessions managed by 9 General Directorates, the co-signatories of the Bioeconomy Strategy.
A "Bioeconomy village" with 20 booths will be showcased during the days 16 and 17 November.
