We are pleased to invite you to the high-level lunch debate on “Future research infrastructure for European leadership in circular forest bioeconomy” in connection with the 9th European Innovation Summit (EIS) in Brussels. The final ERIFORE workshop, hosted by Ms Sirpa Pietikäinen MEP, will take place on Wednesday, 29 November, in the Members’ Salon of the European Parliament from 12:30 to 14:30. The event is organized together with Knowledge4Innovation.
One of the global challenges is to move from the fossil-based economy to sustainable bioeconomy. The forest-based sector has the opportunity to take the lead here by linking the whole value chain from the management and use of natural resources to the delivery of products and services. The forest bioeconomy has high potential in energy products, chemicals and new materials.
The event will highlight the following issues:
