Bioeconomy Conference | Program

PROGRAM

The bioeconomy offers countless ways of preserving the climate and environment for future generations using sustainable, knowledge-based economies. A vast number of scientists and entrepreneurs are working on sustainable biobased strategies, methods and products in the areas of plant and food research, agriculture, forestry, innovative materials, and within the chemical, pharmaceutical and energy industries. The International Bioeconomy Conference, organised by the ScienceCampus Halle and the BioEconomy e.V., provides these stakeholders with an ideal forum for learning about major developments, discussing innovation and establishing ties to representatives from their industry.

The Program 2019 could be viewed here. Below you can also jump to the respective program item via the individual sessions.

The program flyer is available and can be downloaded here as pdf-file.

On the 13th of May, Ecologic Institute will organize a workshop “Beyond sectors – chances and challenges of the multi-stakeholder collaboration in the bioeconomy” in the context of the 8th International Bioeconomy Conference in Halle (Saale). The aim of the workshop is to discuss the challenges of cross-sectoral, multi-stakeholder cooperation in the bioeconomy as well as potential instruments for their facilitation and to present good practice examples. The workshop will be held in German. 

The workshop is part of the BBI-JU (Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking) funded project “Biobridges” under the EU Research Programme Horizon 2020. If you are interested in attending, please register by 10 April 2019 here

The registration for the 8th International Bioeconomy Conference is still open until 30th of April.
