POWER4BIO - emPOWERing regional stakeholders for realising the full potential of european BIOeconomy
POWER4BIO will address these challenges in 5 regions from CEE and 5 regions in Western Europe, selected to cover a wide range of geographical scenarios with complementing features. All in all, the potential brought in the project is huge, considering that the 10 participant regions represent a population of around 88 million people, a GDP of 2460 billion EUR and an area of almost 450,000 km2.
POWER4BIO will also develop a catalogue of bio-based business models, including best practice examples, to support regions understand, identify and select the most adequate bio-based solutions for developing their bioeconomy. Finally, POWER4BIO will design and deliver an ambitious training programme to increase the skills and capacity of the regional stakeholders.
Regarding the research tasks, CIRCE will lead the definition of the methodology that helps and guides European regions in the development, revision and implementation of strategies and roadmaps towards bioeconomy.
Among other activities, CIRCE will also play an active rol in the elaboration of the capacity building programme and interregional cooperation aimed to regional stakeholders of the bioeconomy sector.
