The Slovak EU Council Presidency together with European Commission under the auspices of Standing Committee of Agricultural Research (SCAR) will organise a conference on the role of EU regions in developing a sustainable European Bioeconomy. The aim of the conference is to discuss with national and regional stakeholders the new bioeconomy context for the agriculture, forestry and fisheries, the role of research and innovation to overcome the big societal challenges ahead of us and also to identify the barriers in the regions in adapting the bioeconomy strategy. The wider objective is to raise awareness in the EU regions, on the need for bioeconomy strategy building, giving particular emphasis to the Central and Eastern European countries, to bring to the attention of EU policy makers the regional and international aspects of the Bioeconomy, and to raise awareness among stakeholders on the possibilities offered by these new aspects at regional and international level.
