Save the Date – Dialogue between EU Bioeconomy Regions: Regional Bioeconomy in Central Germany

Challenges and opportunities of the bioeconomy at regional level

On 23rd and 24th June, the regional online conference on challenges and opportunities of the bioeconomy will provide a platform to regional stakeholders for the exchange of knowledge and to discuss the challenges of the bioeconomy and its implementation in European regions, with focus on the Central Germany region. Most importantly attendants will have the opportunity to exchange and co-create ideas to overcome encountered challenges during the workshop session.

The online conference is part of an intensive exchange between the 10 EU regions engaged in the POWER4BIO project - funded by the EU funding programme Horizon2020 for research and innovation - to further advance the bioeconomy in Europe. The event is organised by the Deutsche Biomasseforschungszentrum gemeinnützige GmbH (DBFZ) in cooperation with the Bioeconomy Cluster e.V. and the H2020 project ENABLING (Enhance new Approaches in Biobased Local Innovation Networks for Growth).

This conference will provide a platform for dialogue with partners from POWER4BIO, stakeholders from Central Germany and other European regions in regards to current regional challenges being faced during the implementation of a circular bioeconomy in their rural and urban territories. Regional stakeholders from agriculture and forest sectors, bio-based industries, regional policy makers and research and academia are more than welcome to shape the discussion about the innovations and approaches required at regional level in order to tackle most pressing challenges of the regional circular bioeconomy.
