The event will be hosted by the EU Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science, Carlos Moedas and bring together high-level representatives from the European institutions, industry, primary producers, civil society, the scientific community, representatives from regional public investment banks, private equity firms investing in the bioeconomy, members of the European Parliament and producers in the agricultural, forestry and marine sectors.

It will include two major exhibitions – a bioeconomy flat, furnished and decorated with everyday objects that show how the bioeconomy is already part of our lives. And a two floor exhibition of successful bioeconomy projects.
