BioHorizon: 1st Bioeconomy Stakeholder Workshop

The 1st Bioeconomy Stakeholder Workshop is organised by BioHorizon as a pre-event of the DG AGRI conference “Designing the path: a strategic approach to EU agricultural research and innovation”.


The objectives of this workshop are:
1) to provide Bio-NCPs with inside knowledge on EC and SCAR activities affecting short and longer-term programming of research and innovation activities in the field of SC2;
2) to present overviews and sharing experiences on the implementation of national research and innovation strategies related to this sector.

You could find the programme here: draft agenda.

Participation is open to Bio/KET-B NCPs but, due to limited space and funding, up to 40 total participants will be accepted (including ICPC) and 10 NCPs from non-BioHorizon Member States or Associated Countries will be selected for reimbursement on a first come first served basis (one NCP from each MS or AC). Only accepted participants will be eligible for reimbursement.

The official registration for this event via the EC registration tool has been closed. If you would like to attend the workshop, please send an email to Serena Borgna (borgna@apre.it) stating your interest in participating. We will evaluate all applications and inform you in due time if your application could be accepted.
