EFI's Bioregions Facility and German Biomass Research Centre (DBFZ) are co-organising a workshop about “Unlocking Regional bioeconomy transitions. State of the art and ways forward”. The workshop features several keynotes and panels to address the role of regions in the European bioeconomy, to better understand regional key drivers and enablers, as well as an analysis of flagship regional initiatives and successful policies to unlock investment in the bioeconomy. Hence, participants will be able to collectively reflect on what makes a region attractive for bioeconomy investments. On the second day, there will be a possibility for a study visit to UPM’s new biorefinery construction site at Leuna, in the Saxony-Anhalt region, as a real-life example of attracting bioeconomy investment to the region.
The workshop is organised as a hybrid event taking place on 28-29 June 2022 at DBFZ facilities in Leipzig and at UPM’s new biorefinery construction site in Leuna.
