Regional Bioeconomy Strategies
Bioeconomy is one of the major European policy priorities to support sustainable development. The first European Bioeconomy Strategy was already adopted 7 years ago, in 2012. Since Bioeconomy is especially appealing to both governments and industries for its adaptability to local needs, many countries and regions have started to develop own Bioeconomy strategies. These regional strategies are needed to pool regional excellence and resources for a tailor-made strategic approach achieving implementation agendas. With this regard, Baden-Württemberg adopted its regional strategy “Sustainable Bioeconomy Baden-Württemberg” in June 2019.
Yet, the development of a desirable and sustainable future requires regional actionscoupled with global thinking. Knowledge exchange, joint technological development, global services, convertible local bioeconomy concepts for global use, special raw materials that can be produced only in certain locations – these are only several examples for the need of transnational cooperation to accompany regional activities.
We would like to invite you to take the opportunity to meet international enthusiastic bioeconomists from science, industry and politics in Stuttgart on 27-28.11.2019.
You will visit the selected bioeconomy locations in Baden-Württemberg as well as attend the 4th Bioeconomy Day. At this event you can get in touch with practitioners and decision-makers from Baden-Württemberg and exchange ideas for industrial transformation and policy development and implementation.
On 27.11.2019 we start at 9:00 at the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing Baden-Württemberg. After welcoming words, the excursion begins and we are heading to the Agricultural Experiment Station of the University of Hohenheim, Unterer Lindenhof, followed by a visit of the German Institutes for Textile and Fibre Research Denkendorf (DITF). In the evening you are cordially invited to a reception with the state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Affairs and Consumer Protection Friedlinde Gurr-Hirsch and the state secretary of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing Katrin Schütz.
On 28.11.2019 you are welcome to participate in one of the most important annual bioeconomy events in Baden-Württemberg, the 4th Bioeconomy Day, that takes place at the Hohenheim Castle. This year the focus lies on material flows from agriculture and diversification options for biogas plants. We will also take a closer look at agricultural innovations in Europe, especially biorefineries.
Take a chance to meet and match with experts from Baden-Württemberg and the Danube region in the mentioned above fields to jointly discover cooperation opportunities! We are delighted to welcome you in Baden-Württemberg and to develop a transnational bioeconomy network and implement the bioeconomy in our regions.
Participation in both days is free of charge. The excursion day (27.11) will be conducted in English. The 4th Bioeconomy Day (28.11) is in German with simultaneous translation in English (plus, one group workshop will be conducted in English).
Detailed information about both events can be found in the attached agenda. For organizational reasons online registration is required. Please register until 21.11.2019.
