Developing the bioeconomy by unlocking the potential of European rural areas
The Biorural project aims to accelerate the integration of circular bio-based solutions in European rural areas. These solutions are promoted in particular through the creation of a European network related to the rural bioeconomy.
The main activities of this project include:
- Assessment of the current status of the European bioeconomy
- Identification of factors affecting the uptake of innovation and diffusion of bio-based solutions
- Creation of a European rural bioeconomy network
- Assessment and promotion of bio-based solutions in rural areas
- Knowledge exchange and capacity building for the rural bioeconomy.
- Development and optimisation of an online tool open to stakeholders (BioRural Toolkit).
- Creation of rural development models for bioeconomy businesses.
