Working with nature for a more sustainable way of living
Greater use of renewable resources is no longer just an option, it is a necessity. We must drive the transition from a fossil-based to a bio-based society, with research and innovation as the motor. Launched in 2012, Europe's bioeconomy strategy calls for this new approach to come from scientific research and innovation, combining a wide range of disciplines, including agronomy, ecology, food processing, engineering, biotechnology and chemistry, genetics, economics and the social sciences. The strategy addresses the production of renewable biological resources and their conversion into vital... products, ranging from food and feed to bio-based products and bio-energy.
