Knowledge Based Bio-Economy

Take part in a public consultation on bio-based industries

The European Commission has launched a public consultation – "Bio-based industries: towards a public-private partnership under Horizon 2020" – seeking views on the creation of a public-private partnership to promote research and innovation under Horizon 2020, the next EU Research Framework Programme.

The survey is also expected to collect opinions on the current state-of-play of Europe’s bio-based industry value chains and their potential.

All those directly or indirectly connected with the bio-based industries, including representatives of public authorities, farmers and foresters, businesses and associations, academics and technical experts, civil society organisations and individual citizens are encouraged to complete the questionnaire online before 6 October 2012.

A report on the outcome of the consultation will be published after its completion in autumn 2012.
