Give your feedback to the future bioeconomy


The 2012 EU Bioeconomy Strategy aimed "…to pave the way to a more innovative, resource-efficient and competitive society that reconciles food security with the sustainable use of renewable resources for industrial purposes, while ensuring environmental protection".

In 2017 the Commission carried out a review of its 2012 EU Bioeconomy Strategy, which concluded that the Strategy is delivering on key actions and that the importance of the opportunities offered by the Bioeconomy is increasingly recognised in Europe and beyond. Nevertheless, while the objectives of the 2012 EU Bioeconomy Strategy continue to be relevant and the accompanying Action Plan has delivered on its proposed objectives, a refocusing of the actions and assessment of the scope of the Strategy are considered necessary in light of recent policy developments.


The Commission would like to hear your views on the future Bioeconomy Strategy. The consultation on updating the 2012 European Bioeconomy Strategy is open from 20 February 2018 - 20 March 2018.
