Main Activities

OPERATIONALISING EXISTING ACTIONS & KNOW-HOW will identify existing actions of good governance approaches on training and skills-building in the Bioeconomy in our 8 regions, taking into account infrastructure, technological capacities, design/art and culture, as well as training accessibility, potential of social innovation and new engagement approaches.

UNDERSTANDING THE REGIONS will assess the regions’ specificities, such as economic/cultural characteristics, smart specialization areas, regulatory/political barriers, social attitudes, educational/training availabilities and skills and jobs in demand in the bioeconomy, in order to develop governance and training resources tailored to the regions.  

BUILDING AN ACTIVE NETWORK & COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE will bring together key actors from i) research/academia, ii) industry/businesses, iii) policy and iv) society into 8 regional Communities of Practice, that will operate in their region to:

- Increase awareness about the bio-systems and their governance;
- Define and Assess key drivers for skills-building in the bioeconomy;
- Validate training and mentoring guidelines and governance models for a larger uptake;
- Spur social innovation in the current bio system;

DELIVERING MODERN TRAINING AND MENTORING GUIDELINES TAILORED TO THE REGION’s guidelines will support permanent learning and re-training in areas related to the bioeconomy and will also ensure the inclusion of novel opportunities coming from art, culture and (eco) design inspirations with added value for the bioeconomy.
