Ensuring the Continued Success of the Bioeconomy in Ireland: Progressing & Translating Research

The European bioeconomy employs some 21.5 million people and represents a market worth over €2 trillion. There is further significant growth potential as EU member states supplement food production with sustainable technologies for the production of biofuels, bio-fertilisers, bio-chemicals and bio-plastics. Development of these new technologies opens up new, lucrative markets that are only just beginning to be exploited.

Ireland has many natural resources that can be leveraged to sustainably produce new forms of bio-products and engineer new process technologies; however, it is only beginning to use these resources to tap new bio-economic opportunities. Given the broad scope of the bioeconomy, it is important to identify which opportunities Ireland should prioritise to maximise national income, exports and job creation. Considering the need to reconcile different interests and opinions amongst diverse stakeholders, bioeconomy strategies strive to be inclusive.

This half-day seminar will communicate findings from a recent H2020 European project, CommBeBiz, and discuss key ideas with all those interested in ensuring continued success of the Bioeconomy in Ireland. CommBeBiz is a H2020-funded Coordination and Support Action finishing in February 2018. This project has been motivating and supporting researchers across the European bioeconomy to deliver impact from their research projects.


Agenda will be posted early January.
