The first Global Bioeconomy Summit was held in 2015 and brought together more than 700 bioeconomy stakeholders from over 80 countries. Since then, Bioeconomy has taken a steep and exciting way forward. Many notable initiatives and collaborative efforts have been initiated by the bioeconomy community in order to drive the development of sustainable bioeconomies in their countries and regions.
It is now time to come together again and to re-visit the strategies for future international cooperation in a next Global Bioeconomy Summit!
We are pleased that with support of the German Ministry of Education and Research, the GBS2018 will take place in Berlin on April 19−20, 2018.
Please save the date. Registration will open soon.
The 2nd GBS will focus on international cooperation and partnerships in bioeconomy science and innovation, implementation of sustainable bioeconomy as well as business and societal opportunities arising from it. Bioeconomy stakeholders will come together to identify promising bioeconomy policy and innovation agendas of global relevance, and will share diverse experiences and innovations at national and regional levels.
We hope you will consider participating and join us at the summit in Berlin.
The Chairs of the German Bioeconomy Council
