Joint survey on bioeconomy policy developments in different countries. Background, methods used and recommendations for future editions


The Joint Research Centre, as coordinator of the European Commission's Knowledge Centre for Bioeconomy (KCB), in collaboration with the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) and the International Energy Agency (IEA) Bioenergy and with input from other stakeholders, undertook a survey research in order to collect information on bioeconomy strategies or policies in the EU Member States and other countries. This report covers the background of this survey, provides an overview of other related initiatives, documents the methods used and concludes with recommendations for future editions of this survey.

The outcomes of the survey are made available separately on this website, as web-based interactive dashboards in the 'country pages' and in the policy 'topic page', and separate reports from the partner organisations available through the knowledge library, allowing a flexible approach for possible updates where necessary, as new information becomes available.
