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.

Biobased building materials such as wood and natural insulation materials are in the spotlight. Not only with startups and users, but also with policymakers and the circular building agenda. Biobased building materials help to reduce CO2 impacts and nitrogen emissions during transports. They also become visible in integral solutions and contribute to the desired Environmental Performance (MPG) for planning permission. However, it is too early to cheer. Compared to our neighbouring countries, in the Netherlands the market share of biobased building materials is still small and until now planting trees is mainly seen as good nature practice. How can policies ensure that biobased building materials gain a greater market share? And how can you contribute to this?

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.

Die Europäische Union hat erkannt, dass unsere Gesellschaften über die Tragfähigkeit der planetarischen Grenzen hinaus produzieren und konsumieren. Um dem zu begegnen hat sie Strategien entworfen, um die europäische Produktion und den Konsum kreisläufiger und klimafreundlicher gestalten zu können. Eine dieser Strategien ist die Bioökonomie, welche, neben den erhofften Umwelteffekten auch Innovation und Wachstum bringen soll. Auch in Deutschland rückt die Bioökonomie zunehmend in den Mittelpunkt der Debatte um nachhaltige Produktion und Konsum. Trotzdem spielen bio-basierte Produkte und Dienstleistungen nach wie vor nur eine geringe Rolle. Der Anteil an, in der Bioökonomie Beschäftigten in Deutschland, lag 2015 bei rund 7% und der an der Wertschöpfung bei rund 5% - je nach Berechnungsmethode. Der Bausektor spielt in diesem Zusammenhang eine gewichtige Rolle hinsichtlich seiner Energie- und Emissionsintensität. Das Einsparungspotenzial ist hier besonders hoch. Außerdem akkumulieren sozioökonomische Systeme große Mengen an Infrastruktur (Gebäudebestand), welche letztlich ein Sammelsurium aus Materialen darstellt, was (wieder)verwendet werden kann, wenn die Voraussetzungen dafür geschaffen sind. Welche Lösungen braucht es also um den Anteil bio-basierte und zirkulärer Produkte im Bausektor in Deutschland und in Europa zu erhöhen? Welche Stoffe und Materialeigenschaften sind notwendig um konventionelle, klimaintensive Baustoffe zu ersetzen? Welche Innovationen können entwickelt werden und welche Forschungs- und Kommunikationsstrategien sind dafür zielführend? Welche Rolle spielt die Architektur im Wandel hin zu einer nachhaltigen Bau- und Lebensweise? Und welche Rahmenbedingungen braucht es seitens des Bundes um diese zu stärken? Der vom ICLEI Europasekretariat organisierte Workshop richtet sich an Akteure aus Wirtschaft, Politik, Wissenschaft und Zivilgesellschaft mit dem Ziel, multi-perspektivische Lösungsansätze, (Projekt)Ideen und Politikempfehlungen zu den genannten Herausforderungen zu diskutieren und ganz allgemein, das Bewusstsein für die Wichtigkeit des Themas Architektur in der Nachhaltigkeitsdebatte zu stärken. Im Besonderen, wird sich der Workshop mit der Rolle zirkulärer und bio-basierter Produkte im Bausektor in Deutschland befassen, Potenzial identifizieren und gute Beispiele benennen.

CHANGES IN PURCHASE HABITS - BOOST LOCAL DEPLOYMENT Due to the lack of awareness regarding the opportunities that bioeconomy offers, Lazio Innova and the BIOVOICES project, in the context of the Startupper School Academy, organized a workshop with twofold objective: - Train teachers and tutors on bioeconomy as multipliers - Encourage schools to join the special "Bioeconomy" award The special "Bioeconomy" prize, created by Lazio Innova in collaboration with the BIOVOICES project, Novamont and the European Bioeconomy Network, aims to raise awareness of students towards a more sustainable economic model that uses renewable resources as an alternative to those fossils. The winning project must pay particular attention to the entire life cycle of the product, from the use of raw materials of biological origin (vegetable or animal, with particular attention to the raw materials currently considered waste), to sustainable production, up to disposal (end of life), with a view to circular bioeconomy. During the workshop were presented several opportunities offered by the Bioeconomy sectors and different tools to inform, promote and involve the students, that will compete for the special "Bioeconomy" prize and will be engaged in prototyping a Bio-based product. The main goal of the workshop was to raise awareness on bioeconomy and info-educate teachers and tutors as multipliers of knowledge, in order to contribute to the bio-based products adoption. The meeting took place in the “Spazio Attivo of Roma Casilina”, in live connection with the other 5 “Spazi Attivi” of the Lazio Region (Viterbo: 4 participants; Civitavecchia: 4 participants; Rieti: 4 participants; Bracciano: 2 participants; Colleferro: 5 participants; Roma: 14 participants). The “Spazi Attivi” of the Lazio Region are collaborative spaces where everyone, citizens, startups, businesses and local authorities, participate in the growth of the territory.
