Bioeconomy investment summit - Unlocking EU leadership in 21st Century Bioeconomy
9-10 November 2015, Brussels
Join this high-level event hosted by the Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science, Carlos Moedas, to focus on investment opportunities in the Bioeconomy.
The Bioeconomy Investment Summit will be held at the Charlemagne building (see link below) and it will include two major exhibitions – a bioeconomy flat furnished and decorated with everyday objects that show how the bioeconomy is already part of our lives; and a two floor exhibition with successful bioeconomy projects.
The objective of the two-day Summit is to identify possible ways to mobilize private and public investment for the Bioeconomy, by notably ensuring supportive framework conditions including policy and regulatory environments.
The event will bring together high-level representatives from the European institutions, industry, primary producers, civil society and the scientific community; representatives from regional public investment banks, and private equity firms investing in the bioeconomy; members of the European Parliament; representatives of producers in the agricultural, forestry and marine sectors.
The Bioeconomy holds enormous potential for growth and job creation and it will play a major role in the creation of Europe's new smart and resource-efficient economy.
Registration is free but compulsory.
Applications will be considered on a “first come, first served” basis.
