Event Details

The multidisciplinary aspect of the bio-based economy makes it a hotbed for innovation, but at the same time makes it difficult to bring the innovations to the market as both the production processes, the value chains, and sometimes even the products are non- existing yet.

A circular bio-based economy provides an opportunity to build new end-of-life option into material supply chains allowing the conversion of waste into useful and valuable resources by incorporating the principle of cascading use.

SMEs are the key drivers for innovation in both scenarios and these projects deliver a mechanism to add value to current value chains by analysing the bottlenecks and the policy guidelines to tackle them.
