BBIA was present in Brussels at the Bioeconomy Week in November.

The European Commission organised, on Thursday 16 November, a Bioeconomy Policy Day to present its review of the European Bioeconomy Strategy and Action Plan and discuss its findings with stakeholders and policy makers. The European Bioeconomy Stakeholders Panel also discussed its Bioeconomy Manifesto, setting out a societal agenda for Bioeconomy development.

On Friday 17 November, two parallel sessions on Digitisation and Blue Growth discussed different EU policy initiatives on Digitisation of farming and food sectors and of research and innovation activities contributing to these areas and the wide coverage of Blue Growth’s cross-sectorial and interdisciplinary approach to marine, maritime and aquatic research and innovation and its relevance to EU policies and to the blue economy.
