The programme will be carried by top-level speakers from various fields, academia, and business and the concept and first draft of the conference programme was created by group of national and international experts, representatives of stakeholders and representatives of public institutions. Attention will be paid to post conference activities including policy seminars and policy briefings in order to achieve better implementation of the bioeconomy strategy in European regions.
