We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The European Commission's Bioeconomy Knowledge Centre (BKC) will be launched at this event as the Commission's central knowledge hub on the bioeconomy.
Its purpose is to help to manage knowledge demand (helping users identifying the knowledge they really need), and knowledge supply (informing knowledge producers about users' needs; making knowledge available to (EU) policy makers and stakeholders).
Participants will explore how improved knowledge on bioeconomy can help policymakers better design related EU policies in the short, medium and long term.
The event is co-hosted by the Joint Research Centre and the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation of the European Commission.
This event will bring together relevant policy makers and bioeconomy stakeholders from the European Commission, the EP, the CoR, industrial organisations, industry, civil society.
