      Realising the bioeconomy potential in European regions: policy and practice

      On 26th June, the European Chemical Regions Network and Mr. Jácinth Horváth, member of Committee of the Regions, bring together EU representatives, regional public actors, industries and clusters from various regions to exchange knowledge, and to showcase regional approaches to bioeconomy governance and industrial success stories. Sustainable bioeconomy is already reaching a prominent role among the solutions for climate change mitigation and innovative industrial transformation. It is appealing to both governments and industries for its adaptability to local conditions and its potential to reconcile environment and economy. The chemical industry is an excellent example in this regard, with economic share of bio-based chemicals increasing annually. The necessity to shift the environmental impact of our economies is also recognised on highest political level, driving the renewed Bioeconomy strategy adopted by the EU in 2018. Combining EU wide policy on Bioeconomy with regional initiatives already taking place, the first part of this event will shed light on the role of governance and on connecting stakeholders inside and across regional borders. Regional initiatives are the key to create the pre-conditions for the bioeconomy to become a fully-fledged economic opportunity and the panellists will contemplate on the specific regional approaches taking place in Europe. In the second part speakers from private companies and industry associations will showcase the potential of the bioeconomy to produce real economic value in sustainable manner, regenerating local areas by utilizing locally available feedstock, creating new markets and jobs in practice. Panellists will discuss how regions and industries could step up the developments towards bioeconomy – what will be the demand on innovation, funding and governments?
