An 11% growth in 2016, and €5 billion of planned industry investment, on top of several hundreds of thousands of extra jobs, the majority of which in rural areas: few sectors can match the rise of Europe’s bio-based industries.

Yet, despite exceeding expectations, there is still a lot of potential to be tapped for Europe’s bio-based industries.

It is why the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) is gathering policy makers, researchers, industry leaders and SMEs as well as farmers and primary producers at their Stakeholder Forum, 7 December at the Square – Brussels Meeting Centre: to discuss what has been achieved so far and showcase the added value for the European Union, but also to look forward, identify the remaining challenges, and plan for the future.
