EFI supports regional bioeconomy developments
The need to move away from a linear fossil-based economy towards a bio-based circular economy is widely acknowledged. As the European Commission proceeds with the revision of its bioeconomy strategy, the regional strategies and policies or the lack thereof, are also gaining increasing attention.
EFI is currently offering support to various regions as they are looking into ways of implementing the concept of bioeconomy. During his recent visit to Spain, EFI Director Dr Marc Palahí met with Ms Carmen Vela, State Secretary for Research, Development and Innovation from the Spanish Ministry for Economy, Industry and Competitiveness to discuss the role of EFI in the European research area. He also gave a speech at the National Institute for Agricultural and Food Research and Technology (INIA). Read more here.
