The BSAT-Bioeconomy Strategy Accelerator Toolkit
The Bioeconomy Strategy Accelerator Toolkit (BSAT) represents the POWER4BIO methodology implemented into an online platform for guiding decision-makers to review or develop regional bioeconomy strategies. The toolkit is aimed to all kind of regions, regardless its maturity in the field of bioeconomy. In overall, the BSAT will guide the user to the most suitable added value chains. It contributes to identifying specific regional assets, gaps/weaknesses and how-to-develop’ tips on developing/strengthening its own regional bioeconomy strategy.
Bioeconomy strategies designs vary significantly in terms of their administrative complexity. Also, the supporting tools implemented by regions require different degrees of oversight and monitoring. The determination of the required capacities has to be based on the needs of different design options.
On the other hand, studying the experience of jurisdictions with similar circumstances and speaking to counterparts in those jurisdictions can also help to understand how these needs play out in practice.
Where it is not obvious that existing country capacities match up to the needs of given design options, governments can use a range of capacity needs assessment tools or integrate capacity building into the design of the bioeconomy strategy ‘definition.
The Bioeconomy Strategy Accelerator Toolkit offers supporting material to the users in all the steps towards a new or updated bioeconomy strategy in the region. Among others, best practices of biorefineries, business cases, regulatory examples and financial implemented tools under real conditions are available. Also, the methodology will steer the user through all kind of supporting elements, such us templates, examples from POWER4BIO regions, practical experiences, questionnaires and guidelines to explain and facilitate the analysis, assessment and collection of information. All the documents available are downloadable.
The Bioeconomy Strategy Accelerator Toolkit is an open, easy-to-use and free to access webpage. There is no need to register. Lastly, the users, are not requested to provide the tool with any input.
