BIOSWITCH Match event – Sustainable and bio-based packaging

BIOSWITCH Match event – Sustainable and bio-based packaging

This online event is part of the EU-funded project BIOSWITCH, which aims to bring Europe to the forefront of the bio-based economy by encouraging and supporting brand owners to switch to bio-based products, and it is organised in collaboration with Enterprise Europe Network.

It will consist of two parts:

  • Webinar
    A presentation of the BIOSWITCH project and the main results of its work.
  • Matchmaking meetings
    A matchmaking session to facilitate new contacts between suppliers of bio-based components and packaging materials, brand owners, private companies, and researchers.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn more on the benefits to switch from fossil-based to bio-based approaches, and to generate new business contacts, meet potential cooperation partners and technology providers.

Survey on brand owners’ risks, needs and incentives when switching to bio-based

Survey on brand owners’ risks, needs and incentives when switching to bio-based

Did you know that the bioeconomy has a turnover of €2.3 trillion and accounts for 8.2% of the workforce in the European Union?

The bioeconomy is a central element to the growth of the economy overall, and brand owners are one of the main drivers to boost it when they decide to switch from fossil-based to bio-based approaches. But too often, brand owners are reluctant to invest in taking a bio-based approach due to perceived risks and uncertainties.

At BIOSWITCH, we want to shape solutions to mitigate brand owners’ perceived risks, but first we need to understand them!

  • Which are the main barriers preventing companies from switching to bio-based?
  • What are the motivating factors for brand owners to take bio-based approaches?

Help us find this out by filling in our survey on brand owners’ risks, needs and incentives when switching to bio-based.
