The BioSTEP project (ISIB-8a) has launched a consultation on existing challenges surrounding the development and strengthening of the European bioeconomy and potential measures to address them.
The questionnaire comprises one part of BioSTEP's consultative process and will help the consortium of the project to understand how different actors perceive the challenges, opportunities and policy gaps surrounding the development and strengthening of national and regional bioeconomy strategies. The results will inform the design of three policy workshops, which BioSTEP will organise in 2016. The outcome of this process will be a list of targeted policy recommendations for the (further) development of balanced and informed bioeconomy strategies at the regional, national and European levels.
BioSTEP is an EU-funded project that aims to promote a participative governance of the European bioeconomy through the engagement of stakeholders and citizens. The project was launched in March 2015 and will runt until February 2018.
