Brussels - EGG venue

CBE JU Stakeholder Forum 2023

The first CBE JU Stakeholder Forum will take place on 6 & 7 December 2023 in the EGG venue in Brussels. Participants will be able to join the discussion on the future of the European bio-based sector, visit the exhibition of innovative bio-based solutions and network with 600 CBE JU stakeholders!

What next for the European bio-based sector?’ will be the main theme of the Stakeholder Forum, focussing on three questions that are crucial for the successful development of the circular bio-based sector across Europe:

  • How to stimulate demand for circular bio-based solutions?
  • How to facilitate access to finance to scale up circular bio-based production in Europe?
  • What R&I do we need to keep European leadership in the bio-based sector in the medium-long term?

Participants will engage in a discussion around these questions in nine fora sessions. Two workshops will provide space for an in-depth discussion on skills in the circular bio-based economy, as well as on the needs of young researchers in the sector. In addition to ample networking opportunities, several meeting rooms will be provided to participants for smaller discussion groups. An exhibition featuring highly innovative bio-based solutions developed by CBE JU-funded projects will take place throughout the event.

The full agenda can be found here. Participation is free of charge, but it's compulsory to register here. The registration deadline is 24 November.
