Conference: bioeconomy in action
The conference “Bioeconomy in action - Boosting bioeconomical growth in Europe in a smart and sustainable way” is organised by the Danish Presidency of the Council of the EU.
The conference will be the major event to discuss the Commission strategy “A bioeconomy for Europe” which was submitted in the context of the EU framework programme for research and innovation “Horizon 2020”. The aim of the bioeconomy strategy is to shift the European economy towards greater and more sustainable use of renewable resources.
The three-day event will focus on how to implement the strategy, creating new or existing partnerships between researchers in Europe and between researchers and public and private institutions and companies. The conference will deliver concrete action points to ensure that Europe will benefit from the full potential of the bioeconomy.
Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, EU Commissioner for research, innovation and science will give a speech on 26 March at 10.15 on “Innovating for sustainable growth”.
