New EU-funded circular economy project launched
15 Jul 2022
BIOMODEL4REGIONS, a newly launched EU-funded project aims to support the establishment of innovative governance models at local/regional level and thereby strengthening EU and international science-policy interfaces to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
By building on knowledge and experiences from years of research and studies within the field of bioeconomy the project BIOMODEL4REGIONS strives to put proven best practices and successful initiatives to action. This will be done thanks to a methodology based on the set-up of a governance structure demonstrated in 6 pilot regions, taking into account different areas throughout Europe (Northern, Southern, Eastern and Central-Western EU), their conditions and assets and different primary sectors (forestry, agri-food, aquatic biomass and organic fraction of municipal solid waste- OFMSW).
As circular economy becomes more and more important to reach overarching sustainability goals and help delivering on more specified objectives as the European Green Deal and the EU bio-based economy strategy knowledge about what actions to take and how to execute them are of central importance. BIOMODEL4REGIONS will help with the support and knowledge that is fundamental for deliver results in these areas.
