After conducting an online survey to check what the public perception of bio-based products is, BioWays, an EU-funded project, continues with its tasks and activities aiming at raising awareness of the potential benefits of bio-based products and their applications. The questionnaire has helped the consortium to identify obstacles that prevent a wider adoption of this kind of products by the larger public.
BioWays will create a publicly accessible digital platform that will act as a communication tool and e-library of information about bio-based products providing valuable insight into their benefits and their potential. In order to promote the discussion about the potential of the bioeconomy for society, the project will provide different scenarios for interaction and network where a wide range of stakeholders can interact.
Another objective of BioWays is to increase the overall interest of young students in the bio-based economy at large. Throughout the lifespan of the project, training curriculum, relevant materials and tools will be developed, and pilot training seminars for teachers will be designed in order to achieve this goal.
