Tools, methodologies and lessons learned from european projects for the promotion of the bioeconomy

21 Nov 2022

The BioMonitor project will be presented during the Webinar in Costa Rica organized by ICABR, the International Consortium on Applied Bioeconomy


The promotion of the bioeconomy requires evidence-based policies, strategies, projects and investment. Specifically, to make public policy and private investment decisions, methodologies and tools are required to:

  1. estimate the weight and linkages of the bioeconomy in production, trade, employment and other macroeconomic indicators;
  2. illustrate the flows of biomass production-processing in the different chains and networks of the bioeconomy in the territories.

Aware of this reality, the BioMonitor project was born with the aim of building and implementing a sustainable and solid methodological framework so that the Member States of the European Union could monitor and measure the bioeconomy and its various impacts.

For more than 4 years, 17 European institutions worked together on BioMonitor to build tools, methodologies and case studies for the measurement and systematization of the European bioeconomy.

The objective of the webinar is to present the results, toolkit and lessons learned generated by the European BioMonitor Project, and to discuss with Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) bioeconomy decision-makers about the feasibility and possibilities of using these tools in the region.
