Which are the market and social potentials of bio-based economies in the Alpine Space regions? Are there business best practices available? Which are the key indicators for enacting an ideal value chain in terms of key actors and processes?

These are some of core issues tackled in the document, whose purpose is to create awareness of benefits and potential opportunities that a bio-based economy can bring among stakeholders of the Alpine Space regions, to give suggestions on how to generate new business opportunities and give recommendations for stakeholders.

Prepared by the AlpBioLinkEco partnership, the content can be used by policy makers, entrepreneurs, cluster managers and companies.

It features facts and figures, best practice cases including business success stories, prerequisites for SMEs to implement bio-based economy principles, analysis of the current size of bio-based industry within the  following sectors: “Agriculture” (Agro), “Wood”, “Packaging for Food and Pharma”, “Chemistry” in the regions (where possible) and comparison with the overall economy within the sectors and regions.

In the end, the White paper aims at giving inputs for the implementation of novel bio-based value chains in the Alpine Space region.
