Investing in European success
Developing a bioeconomy using resources from land and sea
With the world population approaching 9 billion by 2050 and natural resources finite, Europe needs renewable biological resources for secure and healthy food and feed, as well as for materials, energy, and other products. The Commission’s strategy and action plan “Innovating for Sustainable Growth: a Bioeconomy for Europe” outlines a coherent, cross-sectoral and inter-disciplinary approach to the issue. The goal is a more innovative and low-emissions economy, reconciling demands for sustainable agriculture and fisheries, food security and the sustainable use of renewable biological resources... for industrial purposes, while ensuring biodiversity and environmental protection. This booklet presents a selection of projects that show Europe’s investment in Research and Innovation as the cornerstone of the Bioeconomy strategy.
