Organized by: Ecomondo Scientific and Technical Committee and National Agrifood Cluster CL.A.N.

Food Industry opens up huge opportunities for innovation and growth in the Bioeconomy sector. Indeed, Bioeconomy represents new and innovative ways of designing and producing food, new ways of recycling by-products and components, and new potential relationships among economic actors. Following the success of the first event organised by Cluster “CL.A.N.” at Ecomondo in 2019, it was decided to schedule a new workshop to highlight the contribution given to Bioeconomy issues by the key national players of the agrifood chain, from companies to research centres and universities, to regional stakeholders. The workshop will be the occasion to illustrate: new industrial success stories on Bioeconomy issues in relevant food chains; Cluster CL.A.N programs to promote education and training across the agrifood Bioeconomy, in order to respond to the needs of the agrifood sector and enable the labour force to gain relevant skills; examples of regional Strategies for Smart Specialisation, with regard to research and innovation on Bioeconomy because Regions play a key role to enhance Bioeconomy.
