The high-level conference ‘The Bioeconomy - Enabling the European Green Deal in Challenging Times’ took place on 6 and 7 October in Brussels. Around 1000 participants discussed the findings of the EU Bioeconomy Strategy Progress Report, which was adopted in June 2022 and highlighted the role of bioeconomy policy to enhance policy coherence and system thinking. On day 1, bioeconomy success stories from EU research and innovation were presented, alongside evidence for a successful implementation of the EU Bioeconomy Strategy.

On day 2, the focus was on how the bioeconomy can help to better manage trade-offs, by addressing the question of how increasing biomass demand for energy and industrial needs can be matched with increasing climate and biodiversity objectives.
