POWER4BIO cross-visit to Andalusia, Spain

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

From October 20 to 21, the POWER4BIO cross-visit to Andalusia, Spain, will take place online. Partners from POWER4BIO, stakeholders from the region and other European regions are invited to participate in the cross-visit. This event will provide an opportunity to regional stakeholders for the exchange of knowledge and to discuss the challenges of the bioeconomy and its implementation within other European regions and it will highlight the latest bioeconomy developments in the region of Andalusia.

The event is organised by the Regional Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development (Consejería de Agricultura, Ganadería, Pesca y Desarrollo Sostenible de la Junta de Andalucía) in cooperation with the project Andalucía Agrotech DIH (Digital Innovation Hub). The cross-visit will provide a platform for dialogue with partners from POWER4BIO, stakeholders from Andalusia and other European regions in regards to current regional challenges being faced during the implementation of a circular bioeconomy in their rural and urban territories.
