Informal meeting on improving cooperation in the bio-economy sector
Brussels, 19 February 2020
The meeting was called by DG REGIO in order to explore the possibility of improving cooperation in the bio-economy sector which puts together innovation and environmental protection and is therefore strongly connected to the objective of the European Green Deal. The Joint Research Center (JRC) Knowledge center offers specific expertise to that topic and could be an initial contact point for the EUSAIR to gather knowledge on specific issues connected to Bio-Economy. The JRC was open to offer scientific support to the EUSAIR stakeholders (especially those coming from the Western Balkans) and would consider a request coming from them to increase such support. The meeting was attended by DG REGIO, DG ENV, JRC, EUSAIR Pillar 3 Coordinators, Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking and the EUSAIR Facility Point.
The mentioned EUSAIR Pillar 3 will send an official letter to JRC to ask for the support to build the cluster.
