Supporting the access of CEE stakeholders to cross-border and trans-national networks – Mazovia, Poland

Please note that this event will be organised as an online meeting.

Within POWER4BIO, the further development of existing networks is supported with the inclusion of missing relevant organisations rather than the creation of new ones. In several events, POWER4BIO is giving regional stakeholders the opportunity to meet a network, exchange experiences, and learn more about the benefits of networking. This event focuses on the support of CEE stakeholders to cross-border and trans-national networks in the Mazovia region in Poland.

Please note that the organisation of this event is still ongoing. For more information, please visit the POWER4BIO event calendar.

Workshop: Expanding the bio-based economy in European regions

Workshop: Expanding the bio-based economy in European regions

Workshop: Expanding the bio-based economy in European regions

In the framework of the POWER4BIO cross-visit to Mazovia, on January 21st 2020, from 11:10 to 12:40, the European Chemical Regions Network (ECRN) organizes the workshop “Expanding the bio-based economy in European regions”.

The event will present regional opportunities and promising bio-based solutions and exchange knowledge and insights for upscaling the bio-based economy in European regions. The scope of the workshop is to identify the most promising areas of cooperation among regions and support the creation of innovative cross-border bio-based value chains.

Knowledge sharing and cooperation between regions are key success factors for the development and implementation of bioeconomy strategies. By bringing together regions with more established bio-based ecosystems and regions that are in the process of developing their bio-based economy, the workshop will provide a knowledge bridge to improve the uptake of a sustainable bioeconomy in Europe.
