Description

A Biobased economy is perceived as a major cross-sectoral topic and is promoted as a smart specialisation strategy for whole regions and companies. Maximum exploitation of raw materials and value out of waste, intermediates and biobased products – this is what biobased economy is all about!

A favorable approach indeed but what is the added value for companies? What does a biobased economy hold in store for research institutes and especially SMEs? A significant step in the right direction involves the establishment of stronger ties between actors from different sectors. It represent a vital prerequisite to turn promising ideas into tangible business results.

Aim of the conference:

The Cluster Food Industry Brandenburg, Plastics and Chemistry Brandenburg, Tourism Brandenburg as well as the Berlin-Brandenburg Cluster Healthcare Industries have again joined forces with the Enterprise Europe Network to discuss these hot topics in an outcome oriented manner with renowned specialists and experienced entrepreneurs.

During the 2nd. Biobased Economy conference in Potsdam the overall objective is to bring its participants together in a cross-sectoral approach in order to increase their ability to innovate, to use resources more efficiently and to compete with biobased processes and products.
