Stakeholders and researchers will get the chance to discuss the projects’ outcomes.

Presentations during the session will focus on the following subjects:

  • An introduction to the BioMonitor project, its scope and outcomes
  • The BioMonitor toolbox: a toolbox of models developed to provide information on how the EU bioeconomy operates; it provides an explanation of how the bioeconomy can influence Europe’s sustainability goals

The session will be dedicated to the Scenarios and Model Results for the EU Bioeconomy. Our speakers will include Myrna van Leeuwen (Wageningen Economic Research), Calliope Panoutsou (Imperial College London), Robert, M’barek (Joint Research Centre, EC), and George Philippidis (Agrifood Research and Technology Centre of Aragón).
