Boosting economic growth and facilitating investments through Bioeconomy: How to build effective regional strategies

Committee of the Regions building - Rue Belliard 99-101, B-1040 Brussels

ERRIN and ERIAFF cordially invites you to the upcoming event “Boosting economic growth and facilitating investments through Bioeconomy: How to build effective regional strategies”, 20th March at Committee of the Regions in Brussels.


This high level event will launch a debate among Regions and EU Stakeholders about how regional Bioeconomy strategies can help reaching European sustainability and development targets and how this can boost growth and jobs.


The agenda involves high level speakers from the European Commission, Academy and European Associations and foresees two interactive regional panel discussions: “Stimulating Bioeconomy environments at regional level” and “A Bioeconomy for EU regions: tools and actors”, where participants in the audience are invited to actively contribute to the discussion on the following points:


  • Structural and operation challenges
  • Public acceptance and consumers’ demand
  • Stimulating Bioeconomy ecosystems at regional level
  • The importance of smart specialisation strategies
  • Existing funding and supporting tools
  • Key actors and regional clusters
  • Interregional cooperation
  • National strategies as a background for good regional strategies


Outcomes of the event will be used for a concept document that will be written by ERRIN and ERIAFF and will position the regional status in the on-going discussion at EU level.

Please remember to confirm your registration by  9th March 2015.



Participation is free of charge. In case the number of participants will exceed the number of available seats, precedence to participants from outside Brussels will be assured. A confirmation email will inform you about the acceptance of your registration. Please note that there will be no reimbursement available for participants and the participant is expected to arrange the trip and accommodation by themselves.
