High level value chain mapping in the Baltic Sea Region: Pilot exercise on circular bioeconomy


This report provides analytical insights on value chains in a selected focus area and fosters motivation for the mobilisation of BSR interregional effort in S3 collaboration. Value chain mapping is defined here as an analytical and visual tool that helps understanding how a particular innovation ecosystem is organised spatially, as well as size wise and direction wise.

To complement the value chain mapping exercise, a support manual was designed with a core methodology which can be applied to value chain mapping efforts across the BSR, in any domain. This resource aims to boost capacity, commitment and confidence across the macro-region in reviewing both the scope and specific opportunities for BSR-focused interregional innovation collaboration.
