The European Commission’s Bioeconomy Knowledge Centre (BKC) will be launched tomorrow in Brussels as the Commission’s central knowledge hub on the bioeconomy.
Its purpose is to help to manage knowledge demand (helping users identifying the knowledge they really need), and knowledge supply (informing knowledge producers about users’ needs; making knowledge available to (EU) policy makers and stakeholders).
Participants will explore how improved knowledge on bioeconomy can help policymakers better design related EU policies in the short, medium and long term, what gaps and challenges still exist for evidence-based bioeconomy policy making.
The event is co-hosted by the Joint Research Centre and the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation of the European Commission. It will bring together relevant policy makers and bioeconomy stakeholders from the European Commission, the EP, the CoR, industrial organisations, industry, civil society.
