From Ruka, in Finland, to Turin, in Italy: September will be the month of the bioeconomy. The very first World BioEconomy Forum will be held in Ruka on 11-13 September. The Forum, born as an idea of Jukka Kantola, CEO of NC Partnering and KaiCell Fibers, will bring together professionals from the leading edge of the bioeconomy for face-to-face dialog in one of the world’s most beautiful areas of outstanding natural beauty. In Turin on 27-28 September will be held IFIB, the International Forum on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioeconomy.
Ruka is located in the heart of Boreal area next to Russia and is an example area of a flourishing Bioeconomy. It offers a thriving community committed to ensuring the success of the event and luxurious resort where delegates can also enjoy the relaxing environment of the senic northern Finland, beautiful sceneries and various activities.
“I am so happy for the interest we have gained all over the world for World BioEconomy Forum and Ruka. Time and occasion seem to be right for this kind of gathering. We have top speakers on very interesting panels, supporters from the companies and entities to celebrate the nature”, says Jukka Kantola.
On 27-28 September in Turin will be held the eighth edition of the International Forum on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioeconomy, which will bring together many stakeholders of the world bioeconomy.
