In March, the BioBIGG consortium went on a study tour to Brussels, Gent and Cologne to access the new knowledge and insights on how to develop the bioeconomy in the South Baltic Area.
The first day of the study tour started with a successful meeting with Biorefine Cluster Europe at Ghent University. Biorefine Cluster Europe interconnects projects and people working with recirculating biomass-based resources and strives to contribute to sustainable resource management. Afterwards, the tour went on to Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant to access the knowledge about SME piloting of production of bio-based products.
The second day started with a visit to the EU-offices of Region Zealand and Region Skåne to learn about the current agenda of the development of the bioeconomy in the EU. The last stop on the BioBIGG study tour was at Nova Institute in Cologne to gather insights into the development of markets for bio-based products and services in the future.
