BBI JU will hold a panel discussion on "Bio-based products making the circular economy era a reality", hosted at the EUBCE 2019 - 27th European Biomass Conference & Exhibition in Lisbon on May 28.
The panel discussion and consecutive roundtable and Q&A session will exchange views on the immense potential the bio-based sector holds for Europe in terms of social, environmental and economic benefits, while allowing for the development of scientific advancements that will eventually accelerate the transition to a full-fledge circular economy.
Furthermore, it will show how a competitive bio-based sector can set Europe and its innovation hubs at the forefront of green technology, innovation and markets.
BBI JU projects representatives will elaborate on the catalyzing effect of BBI JU in structuring the bio-based value-chains through the demonstration of tangible cases.
The session will focus particularly on the following topics:
- what is the current state-of-play and potential of the bio-based sector;
- what role can bio-based industries play in paving the way towards a genuine bioeconomy and circular economy;
- how BBI JU is creating a scientific hub of the bioeconomy sector in Europe;
- making the most of nature's power - how BBI JU projects are maximizing the utilization of Europe's organic biomass;
- taking innovation out of the labs and bringing it to the markets.
To attend this event please make a regular conference registration for at least the day of the event.
