Bioeconomy Policy - Synopsis and Analysis of Strategies in the G7


The study is directed at policy makers, industry, research communities, and representatives of civil society. Its primary aim is to contribute to the establishment of an international discussion and coordination platform for the future development of a global bioeconomy. For the first time, it provides an overview of the political strategies for promoting the bioeconomy within the G7 members, including the EU, and demonstrates both the diversity and commonalities of political aims, approaches and activities. The study thus intends to provide a common ground for mutual learning and for increased international exchange. For this purpose, the report concludes with an analysis of similarities in approaches to the bioeconomy and its assessed potential. Finally, it identifies promising areas for political collaboration to further promote the global bioeconomy.
