The aim of this report is to give an overview of public policies and regulations for the bio-based economy (BBE) with special attention to policy integration over different scales (from EU, national to regional) and across different policy domains (environmental, sustainable development policy, energy, bioeconomy policy, etc.). First, it presents what type of policies can regulate and stimulate the development of a bioeconomy in a direction that is environmentally and economically sustainable. Secondly, an overview of barriers to and opportunities for successful application of regional policies aimed at supporting or stimulating a bio-based economy (BBE) is presented. This information may be used by regional policymakers and other stakeholders for assessing the context in which they operate, particularly for the development of their bioeconomy strategies. Thirdly, an overview of the EU policy instruments that have been developed in the last decade directing, setting definitions and goals, and supporting the development of the bio-based economy in Europe. It emphasises that the bioeconomy development should lead to improved sustainability. Fourthly a long list of policies made as part of this study is compiled addressing the wide diversity of bio-based economy activities. From this list, ten good policy examples were selected based on commonly agreed selection criteria. Policy factsheets were elaborated for the ten good policy examples.
