The bioeconomy

Bioeconomy is the photosynthesis economy, and more generally the living world economy. It encompasses all biomass production and processing activities, whether in forestery, farming or aquaculture, directed at the production of food, feed, biobased products and renewable energy.

Research and innovation are essential to the development of the bioeconomy. Some of the applications envisaged in the bioeconomy are innovative and require additional R&D. the production and use of the necessary biomass also require innovative approaches. And lastly, systemic approaches focused on the bioeconomy as a whole and its economic, environmental and social impacts also need to be underpinned by research.
