BOOST4BIOEAST and the BIOEAST Initiative will organise the Annual BIOEAST Bioeconomy Conference on 6-7 March 2024 in Budapest, Hungary. The theme of the event will be “The role of national HUBs in national and macro-regional bioeconomy policies and R&I priorities in the BIOEAST countries”.

The BOOST4BIOEAST project – BOOSTing the bioeconomy transformation FOR (4) the BIOEAST – aims to empower national stakeholders in the Central Eastern European and Baltic countries for the development of national bioeconomy action plans and to build long-lasting structures and spaces of dialogue for national and macro-regional cooperation.

The 30 partners of the project cover all BIOEAST countries and countries from Western Europe (Belgium, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, and Spain) have been included to stimulate dialogue and knowledge exchange throughout different regions. The project – coordinated by the Hungarian Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (ÖMKi) – follows the footsteps of its predecessor, the BIOEASTsUP H2020 project, building upon its outcomes that laid the foundation for macro-regional networking among bioeconomy experts and policymakers through the development of its Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) and 11 Bioeconomy Concept Papers. The Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC) is a involved in the project in a mainly advisory role, providing communication support and creating links with industry.
