Central and Eastern European Initiative for Knowledge-based Agriculture, Forestry and Aquaculture in the Bioeconomy

The transition of Central Eastern European countries towards a sustainable circular bioeconomy involves multiple actors. Governments should embrace strategic thinking at the national level. The role of multi-actor techniques for the development of new value chains must be emphasised and a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) should be adopted. The EU-funded BIOEASTsUP project will support the deployment of bioeconomy on national, macro-regional and EU levels. It will address challenges related to national and regional strategy as well as to research and innovation. Deployed in 11 Central Eastern European countries, it is supported by 26 government ministries together with a wide range of stakeholders from industry and research.
