The emerging bioeconomy is moving from research niche to market norm and Europe needs to maintain its current global leadership. The update of the EU Bioeconomy Strategy is a major European Commission wide policy initiative which will be presented and discussed during the Bioeconomy Conference on October 22, in Brussels, Charlemagne building. This will be a high level event.

The conference will celebrate the launch of the updated EU Bioeconomy Strategy and action plan to enhance the transition in a changed EU policy context and towards a new environmental, social and economic reality. It will also set the scene for the start of the discussion about synergetic actions across different priority areas:

  • support strategic research and innovation, and strengthen support for education and training;
  • upscale the biobased sectors, mobilise investments, support the creation of markets, develop better monitoring;
  • encourage the adoption, update and coherence of national and regional Bioeconomy Strategies throughout Europe with citizens engagement;
  • strengthen the understanding and resilience of land and sea ecosystems;
  • monitoring and assessment of bioeconomy development.

Registration will be opened early September. See the video for a message from Eurocommissioner Carlos Moedas (Research, Science and Innovation).
