Biostep conference 2017

Effective stakeholder and public engagement in the bioeconomy: Good practices, lessons learned and recommendations for future research

Over the last three years, BioSTEP has designed and implemented a wide range of participatory tools to engage citizens and various stakeholder groups in discussions about the future development of EuropeÔÇÖs 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 objectives of this conference are:

  • To present and discuss practical lessons learned from the application of BioSTEPÔÇÖs participatory tools.
  • To discuss how the lessons learned from BioSTEP can inform ongoing and future activities of the EU Bioeconomy Stakeholders Panel and the update of the EU Bioeconomy Strategy and its Action Plan
  • To present and discuss recommendations for future research that emerged from the application of BioSTEPÔÇÖs participatory tools.
