During the visit, you will have the chance to present your company and project to bio-experts. At the same time, you can gain a deeper understanding of the bioeconomy, the current trends and challenges in the field and about three successful EU funded projects, BIOSKOH, AgriChemWhey and BioLinX.

WHY BOOK A BIOECONFIN EAST VISIT?

You shouldn’t miss this opportunity if you are:

  • looking for ways to valorise the waste of your operations or interested in how you can contribute to the zero-waste operation of other industries.  
  • seeking contact with researchers and industrial players in your sector from all over Europe.  
  • interested in finding out more about the bioeconomy and about how you can benefit from being part of it.  
  • own chemical or dairy locations in Eastern Europe, which could be potential replication sites for cutting-edge innovations realised in successful EU funded projects.  
  • having innovative ideas and looking for partners and funding opportunities to realise them.
