The CommBeBiz project has announced its conference “Bioeconomy Impact 2016”, the first in a series of annual events which will challenge bioeconomy researchers to critically think about the value, impact and relevance of their research. This two-day event (10-11 February) will take place in Dublin, Ireland.
The conference will focus on discussions and solutions for improved exploitation of research results, with keynotes and workshops to enhance capacities and key skills in impact identification and impact creation. Dirk Carrez, Executive Director of the Bio-based Industries Consortium, will address the potential of public-private partnerships as new business models to create impact in the bio-based industries. One of the panel discussion will tackle opportunities and challenges of cross-sectoral innovation in the European Bioeconomy. During the conference, the winner of the Bioeconomy Photo Competition Award will be announced. The closing date for the competition is January 25th.
Bioeconomy Impact 2016 is free to attend. The event is targeted at all stakeholders with an interest in ensuring publicly-funded research has a meaningful impact on European society, including researchers, industry, policy-makers, and all other interested stakeholders.
