The full development of a sustainable European bio-based industry would represent a suitable pathway for achieving several Sustainable Development Goals. The introduction of Bio-based products and solutions depict a great opportunity to reconcile sustainable long-term growth with environmental protection through the prudent use of renewable resources for industrial purposes. Given this, the introduction of bio-based products in the packaging sector is a prominent topic. According to Eurostat , every European makes large use of packaging: indeed, only in 2017, more than 172 kg of packaging waste was generated per inhabitant in the EU-27, a number that is increasing year after year. In addition to the improvement of the re-using and re-cycling systems, the sector should become more sustainable increasing the adoption by brands and companies of bio-based packaging. In the meanwhile, several R&I activities has been implementing in the last few years in order to create bio-based materials able to replace the fossil-based plastics in packaging, in particular in food sector: such activities aim to produce new biodegradable materials, increasing their performance and reducing costs. However, innovations market uptake can be slowed down by the purchase behaviour of consumers: in spite of the general and increasing positive attitude towards green products, consumers could be discouraged in choosing food products with bio-based packaging due to the general higher prices or due to some issues (real or perceived), e.g. possible concerns about functionalities and performances compared to the fossil-based packaging. Starting from the main results of R&I projects in bio-based food packaging and from the consumers’ expectations and concerns, the workshop will ease the dialogue among quadruple helix stakeholders in order to co-create recommendations and possible solutions to be taken to boost the adoption of bio-based packaging and create a favourable environment for consumers’ habits change. Event details and relevant documents produced during the workshop will be published and available on the Biovoices Platform.

La bioeconomía marca el rumbo hacia un modelo económico más sostenible, circular y eficiente en el uso de los recursos. Su objetivo es una economía más innovadora y de bajas emisiones, que produce alimentos, energía y bienes industriales y da valor a toneladas de residuos biológicos y materiales residuales. En esta jornada, compuesta por tres bloques (presentaciones, mesa redonda y taller) se tratará de reunir a los principales agentes del sector (investigadores, empresas, sociedad civil y administración) para debatir entorno a los principales retos y desafíos que tiene la bioeconomía, y los productos que se obtienen de ella (bioproductos), y se tratará de dar soluciones a dichos retos. Para ello, se creará un entorno propicio donde se potencie la colaboración intersectorial, cambiando los roles y respondiendo a distintos desafíos. Bioeconomy sets the course for a more sustainable, circular and efficient economic model in the use of resources. Its objective is a more innovative and low-emission economy, which produces food, energy and industrial goods and gives value to tons of biological waste and residual materials. The event will be stuctured in three parts (presentations, round table and workshop), the stakeholders involved in bioeconomy (researchers, companies, civil society and administration) will be brought together to discuss the main challenges that the bioeconomy has, and will try to provide solutions to these challenges. To this end, an enabling environment will be created where intersectoral collaboration is enhanced, changing roles and answering to different challenges.

La Regione Autonoma Friuli Venezia Giulia organizza un importante evento rivolto ai rappresentanti delle Amministrazioni pubbliche, della ricerca, del settore produttivo, della società civile, della scuola, della formazione, e dell’Università per analizzare congiuntamente il tema della Formazione nell’ambito di un settore strategico a livello europeo, quale la Bioeconomia. Tale settore coinvolge le attività economiche che utilizzano le bio-risorse rinnovabili del suolo e del mare (colture agricole, foreste, animali e micro-organismi terrestri e marini) per produrre cibo, materiali e energia. Valorizzando la vocazione manifatturiera innovativa, la presenza di un’offerta formativa e scientifica di eccellenza e la conseguente capacità di produrre capitale umano qualificato, l’Amministrazione regionale ha individuato la Bioeconomia quale potenziale opportunità di sviluppo economico in Friuli Venezia Giulia e in tale contesto il tema della formazione assume una valenza strategica. Nel corso dell’evento verranno esaminate con i partecipanti le seguenti tematiche: • Come sensibilizzare il mondo produttivo e anticipare i bisogni formativi legati alle opportunità della Bioeconomia; • Come formare i formatori; • Come orientare i giovani, le famiglie e gli insegnanti/formatori. Ai lavori saranno anche presenti esperti di livello nazionale, i quali illustreranno alcune buone pratiche.

The main objective of the workshop is the identification of needs and actions to fill existing gaps in the bio-based products development from laboratories to market. In general, SMEs and start-ups working in the development of promising bio-based solutions or processes need to establish partnerships to reach successfully the market. Testing activities in operational environment, demonstration at large scale, compliance with existing standards and regulations, consumers’ acceptability, financial resources for the product industrialisation are some of the issues that companies have to face in the scaling-up stage. BBEU Pilot Plant has developed good practices to help companies in crossing the “valley of the death”, and can also help them in establishing partnerships, networking with various stakeholders, etc. Speakers – representing quadruple helix stakeholders – will address the topic from their different perspectives presenting best practices and highlighting existing challenges and barriers. Thanks to the active participation of the audience, involved both in the roundtable through interactive tools and in the following MML workshop, the event will co-create and generate ideas to improve the bio-based products marketability. Recommendations collected will be part of the policy brief that will be presented to the European Commission and the European Parliament by the end of the project (December 2020). Finally, participants will have the occasion to concretely understand the opportunities that a pilot plant can offer thanks to the site visite of the BBEU Pilot Plant.
