In order to cope with an increasing global population, rapid depletion of many resources, increasing environmental pressures and climate change, entrepreneurs in the public and private sector in Europe need to radically change their approach to production, consumption, processing, storage, recycling and disposal of biological resources. Especially in rural areas which cover more than 50% of Europe’s surface and are home to over 20% of its population.
Thanks to the project, the bio-based sector will be consolidated, harnessing regional assets, diversifying and revitalizing the economy and providing quality jobs and opportunities in rural areas. In addition, the production and use of bio-based products replacing existing fossil-based alternatives, such as fertilisers or bio-based packaging, can make a considerable impact on the agro-food systems greenhouse gases emissions at European level.
