The event focused on investment opportunities in the Bioeconomy that holds an enormous potential for growth and job creation and it will play a major role in the creation of Europe’s new smart and resource-efficient economy.
The objective of the two-day Summit was to identify possible ways to mobilize private and public investment for the Bioeconomy, by notably ensuring supportive framework conditions including policy and regulatory environments.
The event was hosted by the EU Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science, Carlos Moedas and brought together high-level representatives from the European institutions, industry, primary producers, civil society, the scientific community, representatives from regional public investment banks, private equity firms investing in the bioeconomy, members of the European Parliament and producers in the agricultural, forestry and marine sectors.
It included two major exhibitions – a bioeconomy flat, furnished and decorated with everyday objects that showed how the bioeconomy is already part of our lives. And a two floor exhibition of successful bioeconomy projects. NTUA team presented very successfully the BIOCORE project.
