KBBE and civil society
The knowledge-based bio-economy is about people. It is about harnessing advances in the life sciences for the benefit of European citizen, either through direct improvements to their quality of life or by enhancing the competitiveness of the European economy in an efficient and sustainable manner.
This means that the knowledge-based bio-economy should reflect the aspirations of all stakeholders, including civil society, academia and industry. In order to help fulfil those aspirations, we at the European Commission need to inform you about the latest developments in this area and to hear your views on the issues it raises.
If you represent a civil society or non-governmental organisation concerned with food, agriculture, biotechnology or related issues, we would like to invite you to register for our KBBE and civil society newsletter. All registered organisations will automatically receive updates on the latest developments in this important sector via e-mail.
In addition, a selected number of NGOs (particularly those with a broad-based membership and well established communication networks) will be invited to take part in a more interactive forum. If you are interested in helping us in this capacity, you should indicate your willingness in your reply.
We look forward to hearing from all of you!
