7 December 2017 – The Square – Brussels

The inaugural Stakeholder Forum is a one-day public event dedicated to engaging directly in dialogue with BBI JU’s stakeholders. Save the date and make sure you are part of the day. The event will include plenary keynote speeches, high-level discussions with expert panels, thematic breakout sessions, with plenty of networking possibilities.

You can also find out about our work through meeting all 65 of our ongoing projects including the Agrimax project who will be presenting their work in the permanent exhibition, accessible throughout the event.

The agenda includes opening and closing keynote speeches from champions of the bio-based economy. In the plenary sessions key contributors will present their views on defining the roadmap for a bio-based Europe, the strategic context of the BBI initiative & achievements, lessons learned & sector development and rapporteur feedback.

Thematic breakout sessions will offer the chance to any stakeholder to contribute their views on the way forward in the following areas:

  • The role of the primary sector in building bio-based industries
  • Industrial innovation – defining the direction for science-based innovation
  • The value for Europe’s citizens – aligning economic & societal expectations & needs
  • New markets, new sectors, new products

The outputs from the event will be collected and used as stakeholder feedback to help shape BBI JU’s role in the bioeconomy for the coming years.  

Registration will be free but obligatory. Places will be offered on a first come basis and places are limited.

Registration will open at the beginning of September via a link published in this page.
