The European Commission has published an independent mapping study of EU regional research and innovation plans and strategies for the bioeconomy.
Amongst other conclusions as a result of the study, it is suggested that:
- A common definition or classification for the bioeconomy be established.
- Better and more synergies between structural funds and Horizon 2020 are presented.
- Public awareness and acceptance of the bioeconomy should be raised.
The study is available here.
