Short description:

This report aims to review some of the principal R&I policy frameworks existing and adopted at the
EU level to support the bioeconomy, and in particular across the Directorate-General (DG) network
including DG Research and Innovation (DG R&I), DG Agriculture and Rural Development (DG Agri)
and DG for the Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG Grow). These three DGs
were chosen given their high relevance and close connection to bioeconomy development from
perspectives of securing biomass inputs, improving processing technologies, creating industries and
appropriate business models and forming and informing market demand. While the policies and
supports of many other DGs inevitably also contribute to the European bioeconomy (e.g. DG
Environment, DG Climate Action, DG Competition and DG Energy), the aim of this focused
assessment is to review principal R&I policy interactions and identify any gaps in the system.
