The Bioeconomy Manifesto as a Collaborative Tool for Facilitating Innovation and Growth for a Stronger European Bioeconomy


Representatives from large and small companies, NGOs, biomass producers, regions, and academia from all over Europe as members of the European Bioeconomy Stakeholders Panel have prepared a Manifesto. This document will be presented to the public on the Bioeconomy Policy Day on 16th of November, during the H2020 Societal Challenge 2 Infoweek. The Manifesto recognises the opportunities and challenges of developing the Bioeconomy and provides inspiration to regions and Member States, at various stages of development of their Bioeconomy strategies, as well as for the EU as a whole.

With an in-depth workshop on 17th of November, the Panel is reaching out to other interested players in the Bioeconomy to share with them the objectives of the Manifesto as well as its policy recommendations. There are a number of actions and next steps that the Panel wants to initiate to advance the Bioeconomy and we invite other interested stakeholders to discuss those with us.

The attendees will have also the opportunity to participate in an open debate about some of the Guiding Principles included in the Manifesto, such as, a) Cooperation between sectors and actors along the value-chains; b) A long-term education, training and research & innovation agenda for the Bioeconomy; and c) Importance of regional strategies and rural renaissance.

Additionally we would like to present some open discussion points and seek broader engagement to further Actions included in the Manifesto.
