Bioeconomy investment summit

Unlocking EU leadership in 21st Century Bioeconomy

The Bioeconomy holds enormous potential for growth and job creation and it will play a major role in the creation of Europe's new smart and resource-efficient economy.

The objective of the two-day Summit is to identify possible ways to mobilize private and public investment for the Bioeconomy, by notably ensuring supportive framework conditions including policy and regulatory environments.

The event will bring together high-level representatives from the European institutions, industry, primary producers, civil society and the scientific community; representatives from regional public investment banks, and private equity firms investing in the bioeconomy; members of the European Parliament; representatives of producers in the agricultural, forestry and marine sectors.
