With a bottom-up mapping exercise the Bioeconomy Pilot
has currently developed 7 cases for Joint Demonstration (Demo Cases), which are in a way all related to Industrial Modernisation. But as they use Biomass for feedstock they are also often linked to the AgriFood domain. But the Bioeconomy is a cross-over topic and cannot easily be classified in the more ‘traditional’ division of sectors as has been done for the Thematic S3 Platforms.
The Bioeconomy Pilot concerns the implementation of synergies in new biobased value chains cross regions based on their smart specialisations. Its main objective is to develop new integral Biobased value chains and new connections between sectors as chemistry, agro, wood & paper, cosmetics and energy, leading to new interregional business opportunities and co-investment through interregional cooperation and partnerships for co-investment, exchange of information and ideas. VI is happy to bring in its experience on S3 cooperation within the Thematic S3 Platform forIndustrial Modernisation and to strengthen the Demo Cases with the network and the new opportunities the Thematic S3 Platform for Industrial Modernisation might offer.
