3rd International Bioeconomy Congress Baden-Württemberg

The 3rd International Bioeconomy Congress Baden-Württemberg 2020 will be an inter- and transdisciplinary online meeting for experts and stakeholders dedicated to systemic approaches of a sustainable bioeconomy. This year's congress comes with the title “The contribution of Bioeconomy to the Green Deal” and will discuss how innovative products, processes, principles and regional circles can contribute to mitigation of climate change, reducing pollution, supporting resource efficiency and other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The program will include two plenary sessions with high level keynote speakers and expert discussions as well as parallel and a virtual poster sessions on selected focus topics.

Dr.-Ing. Ursula Schließmann and Dr. Markus Wolperdinger are on the Scientific Committee. Some scientists from Fraunhofer IGB and IGVP are represented in the different lecture sessions.
