What's it all about?
On 03 July 2019 the "Local Bioeconomics Workshop" organised by the ICLEI European Secretariat (partner in the Horizon 2020 project BIOVOICES) and the City of Sigmaringen will take place at the Innovation and Technology Center Sigmaringen (Innocamp Sigmaringen). The aim of the event is to discuss multi-perspective solutions, (project) ideas and policy recommendations on current challenges for the bioeconomy in Germany and Europe.
In particular, the workshop will enable an exchange of good practice on the creation of new value chains, including through green and innovative public procurement initiatives. In addition, essential elements of a changed regulatory framework for the promotion of such value chains from raw material production/procurement through certification to sales will be identified.
The workshop will focus on the following questions: What solutions are needed to increase the proportion of biobased and circular products in Germany and Europe? Which products and product properties do consumers want? Which innovations can be developed and which research and communication strategies are appropriate? What role do local value chains and local markets play? And what framework conditions do the federal government need to strengthen?
