BioMonitor SMEs and Industry exchange

7 Oct 2021

This interactive event will focus on the contribution of SMEs and industries in the chemical sector towards the bioeconomy.


Aim of the session
Within this exchange we will discuss the benefits of improving and re-structing data and modelling frameworks related to the bioeconomy. We would like to specifically reach sustainability officers and innovation managers for this session. Participants will be asked to share experiences of reporting data on biobased products, with the organizing partners of the Biomonitor projects (NOVA, TNO and Imperial College London). Furthermore, the Dutch Customs authority will give a presentation about importing and exporting biobased products and the use of CN Codes. After that, we would like to have an interactive discussion on the pros and cons to use such codes and the resources that are required to use them.

About the BioMonitor Project
During the last twenty years, EU policymakers have placed high priority on the expansion of bio-based value chains to reduce use of petrochemicals and mitigate climate change. Various initiatives, from EU policymakers, Industries and other organizations made this priority evident. The transition to a more bio-based economy needs to be monitored to evaluate its progress and impact. The BioMonitor project contributes to this process of monitoring and evaluation by re-structuring its existing data and modelling framework. The ultimate goal of the BioMonitor project is to get a clearer picture of the bioeconomy in Europe, and how it affects our lives.

The final agenda and speakers will follow in September. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Charlotte Koppen (
