Since 2016, the representatives of Bioeconomy Cluster are part of the Strategic Working Group “Sustainable Bio-Resources for a Growing Bioeconomy”, which is a thematic working group under the Standing Committee on Agricultural Research (SCAR). This working group discusses how renewable bio-resources can be sustainably produced for the bioeconomy. It is not only the issue of producing more renewable biological resources from fewer inputs, but also about logistical questions, the biomass potential of different European regions, how much biomass is available and how much of that can be used. Moreover, it deals with the question of what are the connections of bioeconomy with other sectors.
On 7th June 2017, the representatives of Bioeconomy Cluster have participated at the 2nd meeting of Strategic Working Group “Sustainable Bio-Resources for a Growing Bioeconomy”, with the aim to find a synergy between the bioeconomy strategy and the circular economy. One of the outputs of this meeting is the document Policy Brief, which includes the conclusions and recommendations of the members of given working group.
