Greening Europe - Roundtable
The rise of the bio-based economy
This roundtable will be held on Tuesday, 29 May at the Bibliothèque Solvay and is part of the Greening Europe Forum’s activities and is co-organised by Friends of Europe and Novozymes.
The debate will ask what the bio-based economy is and how it can help the EU deal with its overarching priority to spur growth and create jobs. Questions under discussion will include how the bio-based economy can address challenges such as resource scarcity, sustainable agriculture and climate change, while also being profitable for farmers. It will highlight the technological edge Europe has over others, and look at what other regions are doing to promote the bio-based economy. What are the key barriers to the move towards a bio-based economy? What is the role of policymakers in ensuring that Europe keeps the lead and translates its potential into reality?
