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.

Here is where the European Commission’s Knowledge Centre for Bioeconomy comes into play:

  • Identifying and filtering relevant information and making it accessible.
  • Bringing together researchers, policymakers and other experts in the field.
  • Analysing, synthesising and communicating available evidence.
  • Enhancing the knowledge base for policymaking.


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