(Deliverable 2.3). Chapter 2 discusses these strategies and considers general guidelines for the further work in BioSTEP. Chapter 3 takes a closer look at the concept of public engagement. Chapter 4 reflects on the Technological Innovation Systems approach on which Deliverable 2.3 was based. It is argued that this approach was useful for identifying the main actors and network activities in the bio-economy domain, but that it should be complemented or combined with participatory stakeholder dialogue methodologies. This chapter also points at some tools and an instructive framework (TranSTEP: https://transtepapproach.wordpress.com/) that could be helpful for opening up debates in the developing bioeconomy.
