emPOWERing regional stakeholders for realizing the full potential of european BIOeconomy
The POWER4BIO project aims at increasing the capacity of regional and local policy makers and stakeholders to structure their bioeconomy and to support the emergence of a thriving bio‐based sector. The project creates knowledge and supports best practice exchange as well as networking within and among regions, across the EU.
Project duration: 10/2018 – 03/2021
Project lead: CIRCE Foundation – Research Centre for Energy Resources and Consumption
Cross-clustering partnership for boosting eco-innovation by developing a joint bio-based value-added network for the Danube Region
The aim of this project is to develop new methods, strategies and tools to connect Danube actors (SMEs, farmers, universities, research institutes, etc.) in a bio-based industry. The project is focused on three bio-based value chains with high potential, such as Phytopharma, Eco-construction and Bio-based packing (bioplastic).
Project duration: 01/2017 – 06/2019
Project lead: BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg GmbH
The Central-Eastern European Initiative for Knowledge-based Agriculture, Aquaculture and Forestry in the Bioeconomy – BIOEAST – offers a shared strategic research and innovation framework for working towards sustainable bioeconomies in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries. The open initiative was started by the Visegrad Group Countries: Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and joined by Bulgaria, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Republic of Estonia, Romania, Slovenia.
EU Bioeconomy Stakeholder Panel
Set by the EU’s Bioeconomy Strategy, the Panel aims to support interactions between different policy areas, sectors and stakeholders in the bioeconomy – leading to tangible actions. Because the bioeconomy is made up of many different sectors, it is difficult for one single expert or organisation to have a complete overview. The Bioeconomy Stakeholders Panel meets that challenge by bringing together, in one group, people with different stakeholder perspectives.
European Bioeconomy Network
BE-Rural is a partner of the European Bioeconomy Network
The European Bioeconomy Network (EuBioNet) is a proactive alliance of EU funded projects dealing with Bioeconomy promotion, communication and support. The main goal is to maximise the efforts, increasing the knowledge sharing, networking, mutual learning, coordination of joint activities and events.
European Network for Rural Development
The European Network for Rural Development (ENRD) is the structure that brings together all the stakeholders aiming to achieve improved rural development results in the EU. The network serves as a hub for the sharing of information about how Rural Development policy, programmes, projects and other initiatives are working in practice and how they can be improved to achieve more.
The SUBMARINER Network brings together actors from the whole Baltic Sea Region together to actively promote innovative and sustainable uses of marine resources. It operates across the whole knowledge triangle integrating perspectives from local to international scale, different science disciplines as well as policy and economic stakeholders.
