Over the last three years, the European project BioSTEP has designed and implemented a wide range of particitatory tools to engage citizens and various stakeholder groups in discussions about the future development of Europe's bioeconomy. These tools covered different modes of participation, ranging from education and information activities to intensive stakeholder dialogues and the co-creation of regional bioeconomy roadmaps.
The conference end of February 2018 was attended approx. 80 bioeconomy stakeholders, including industry representatives, representatives of regional bioeconomy clusters, representatives of non-governmental and civil society organisations, policy-makers, researchers, and consultants. This conference was the final event of the BioSTEP project.
