ROBIN is the acronym for "Deploying circular Bioeconomies at regional level with a territorial approach". The project is funded under the 2021 Call "Innovative governance, environmental observations and digital solutions in support of the Green Deal". ROBIN is one of a series of projects that aims to support and further develop regional bioeconomy strategies – a goal that is fully in line with the findings of the EU Bioeconomy Strategy Progress Report (European Commission, 2022).
