Friday, October 26 , 2018 182

The European Commission (DGRI) organized in Brussels, 22th October 2018, in the Charlemagne building, an international conference about circular bioeconomy.

UEF attended this interesting and high level event, with more than 450 participants.

 

The emerging bioeconomy is moving from research niche to market norm and Europe needs to maintain its current global leadership.

The conference, moderated by the talkative and motivated Katrina Sichel, focused on the need to have a sustainable and circular bioeconomy to enhance the transition in a changed EU policy context and towards a new environmental, social and economic reality. It also set the scene for the start of the discussion about synergetic actions across different priority areas:

  • support strategic research and innovation, and strengthen support for education and training,
  • upscale the bio-based sectors, mobilise investments, support the creation of markets, develop better monitoring,
  • encourage the adoption, update and coherence of national and regional Bioeconomy Strategies throughout Europe with citizens engagement,
  • strengthen the understanding and resilience of land and sea ecosystems,
  • monitoring and assessment of bioeconomy development.

Some videos from Austria and Spain presented some local experiences in schools, with the students attending the conference.

Other videos with famers or entrepreneurs or NGO presented some local sucess stories and initiatives in bioeconomy.

 

UEF Presidency was represented by Hervé Némoz-Rajot, vice president.

You can download the full document offererd to the participants at the opening of the conference.

The process is still going on and will go to the EU Parliament and the EU Council at the end.
