Biobased Economy is the sustainable answer to a fuel based economy. Not fuel but biomass represent the raw material for a future economy trying to solve global societal challenges such as climate change and waste reduction.
What does a biobased economy hold in store especially for SMEs? Do companies have a chance to be competitive with biobased products? What are the prerequistes for truely closed and above all cross-sectoral value chains?
The biobased conference in 2019 is trying to answer some of these vital questions. The Biobased Barcamp provides an open space for the regional and international bioeconomy community to discuss their ideas, projects, issues, challenges and visions.
After two successful Biobased Economy Conferences in Potsdam before, it is time to choose a different form – a barcamp – for bringing interested parties together. This time it is up to the participants which themes to set, which topics to discuss, which questions to raise.
With the Brandenburg cluster Food industry, Plastics/chemistry, Cluster Healthcare and Cluster Energy Technology on board we have gathered great Expertise and set up a framework where all participants have the possibility to:
• present an example of how to create business from green research
• present your newly developed biobased product and get a peer-review on that
• discuss a best case example of…
• prepare a workshop on a bioeconomy issue you’re stuck with
• create a discussion about a bioeconomy topic that has long been on your mind
• present a project idea that you would like to advance together with others
Two events on biobased economy in Potsdam were launched in 2015 and 2017 and turned out to be very successful. With the kindly help of different sector groups we managed to acquire 24 international participants from 11 countries (out of 124 participants) in 2015 and 23 international participants from 10 countries (out of 111 participants) in 2017.
