Sustainable and circular Bioeconomy, the European way

22 October 2018, 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

 on "first come first served" basis is open.

Please register by 15 October 2018.

The event will be webstreamed


Venue: Charlemagne building, Brussels
