BioEconomy Stakeholders' Conference: 'From sectors to system, from concept to reality'
 

In line with the EU strategy 'Innovating for Sustainable growth: a Bioeconomy for Europe', fostering an understanding of the bioeconomy as an inter-connected system and inspiring and enabling different actors to take further concrete actions to build the EU bioeconomy are key objectives for the European Commission.

Within this framework, the third Bioeconomy Stakeholders Conference, in which Ms Mella Frewen (Director General of FoodDrinkEurope) was an invited speaker, was hosted by the Italian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, in collaboration with the European Commission, on 8-9 October 2014 in Turin (Italy). This Conference triggered discussion on how to integrate the concept of the Bioeconomy into European policies, fostering stronger policy coordination in a top-down approach at national, regional and local level, in light of the EU 2020 strategy, the Horizon 2020 overarching goal and the Smart Specialization Strategy.

The Conference gathered experts and a wide range of stakeholders from industry, academia and end-users to discuss about the routes to close the industrial research-market gap and maximize the knowledge-based development potential of local regions in the following Bioeconomy key areas:

  • Primary Production: the role of agriculture, forestry and marine resources, Agro-food by-products and waste as additional biomass sources;
  • Biomass Transformation and Integrated Biorefineries;
  • Horizontal key elements needed for a strong Bioeconomy in Europe;
  • Innovation and key supporting measures;
  • Implementation tools at national and regional level.
