Public consultation on the Bio-based Economy for Europe: publications available!

The European Commission held a public consultation entitled “Bio-based economy for Europe: state of play and future potential” from February to May 2011. From the obtained results, two publications have been made.

The REPORT presents the statistical analysis and the content analysis of data collected with the help of the questionnaire published in relation to the consultation while the SUMMARY highlights the 35 position papers received from organisations directly or indirectly linked to the bio-based economy.

Both provide a summary of views received from individuals, organizations and public authorities that could assist the Commission in shaping strategy and action plan necessary to develop and promote sustainable

European Bio-based Economy. They are completed with three annexes ( Questionnaire , Respondents' comments to open questions and General comments of respondents that refused to provide their personal details ).
