The bioeconomy has been flourishing everywhere for the past few years: it inspires innovation, drives government policies and attracts public funding. It is said to be able to help house and feed everyone on the planet while fighting climate change. Which makes it sound like a miraculous answer to all our problems. What if we dug deeper?
On June, 20th in Arras and on June 21st, 2017 in Amiens, the World Forum for a Responsible Economy offers two days of international conferences on the bioeconomy.
Through the lenses of agro-resources and food, we will explore how economic sectors and territories can seize the opportunities presented by bioeconomy.
Which biomass for which uses? How can we meet human needs while sustainably managing our resources? Which innovations are needed to ensure the competitiveness of bio-based products and materials and how can they be stimulated?
By placing the use of biomass at the heart of economic activities, bioeconomy tries to meet human needs (energy, materials, food, chemicals, etc.) while reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and our impact on the environment.
