DISCOVER THE MARKET-DRIVEN CIRCULAR & BIOECONOMY as EU Green Week Partner Event

The path towards zero pollution is paved with complementary solutions based on bioeconomy or circular economy approaches. However, interconnected value chains seem to be fragmented across regions and fields. How can we connect the actors & create business case for sustainability? The Market-driven Circular & Bioeconomy EU Green Week Partner Event brings together European projects based on industry-academic partnerships in the fields of biodiversity, forestry, agriculture, transport & engineering

Vienna, Austria, Austria

Join us on 8 June to discuss the role fast-moving research and innovation academic-industry partnerships funded by the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI-JU) and Horizon 2020 programmes have in fostering resilience and building towards a net zero future and zero pollution of air, soil, and water.

In 2021, the European Commission has adopted the action plan “Towards a Zero Pollution Ambition for air, water and soil – building a Healthier Planet for Healthier People”. The impact of pollution is not isolated to one sphere. On the contrary, the interconnection between the spheres of the global ecosystem (water, soil, air, and biosphere) is visible and unavoidable. The path towards zero pollution is paved with complementary solutions based on bioeconomy or circular economy approaches. However, interconnected value chains seem to be fragmented across regions and fields.

How do we connect the actors across industries? What is the business case for sustainability? The Market-driven Circular & Bioeconomy EU Green Week Partner Event brings together representatives of European projects based on industry-academic partnerships in the fields of biodiversity, forestry, engineering, chemistry, agriculture, and transport.
