Knowledge for policy

Knowledge Centre for Bioeconomy

We enhance the knowledge base for policymaking on the bioeconomy.

What we do

A common and robust knowledge base for a sustainable and circular bioeconomy

The Knowledge Centre for Bioeconomy supports policymaking by:

  • identifying, filtering and structuring relevant information and making it accessible
  • bringing together researchers, policymakers and other experts in the field
  • analysing, synthesising available evidence and communicating it in a transparent, tailored and concise manner

Brief me

  • Global challenges, such as climate change and land and ecosystem degradation, coupled with growing demands for food and energy, force us to find new ways of producing and consuming.
  • A sustainable and circular bioeconomy helps address these challenges.
  • To develop a sustainable and circular bioeconomy, policies must be evidence-based and coherent across different sectors. For this, we need a common and robust knowledge base.
