Short description:

Deliverable 2.1 presentes the available data sources to quantify the bioeconomy indicators and drivers introduced in Deliverable 1.1, the quality of the available data, the data gaps related to the indicators, and the implications for new data requirements. This Deliverable is organized in three interrelated and connected stages, which are summarized as follows: In the first stage, different data sources have been reviewed and their usefulness for quantifying the bioeconomy indicators has been evaluated. Then, based on the review of the statistical sources, the data gap analysis of the bioeconomy indicators is performed. In this second stage, the data gap analysis is employed to identify the availability and quality of bioeconomy related data sources to quantify the indicators proposed in D1.1. This exercise enables us to identify not only bioeconomy indicators that can or
cannot be derived from existing data sources but also provides the ground needed to perform a data quality assessment of the existing data sources based on a set of data quality criteria. These data-quality criteria have been selected to reflect the needs and goals of the BioMonitor project. Finally, the output of the second stage feeds the third activity performed in this Deliverable. The information of gaps between the data needed and the data available is used in the third stage to identify the implications of additional data requirements for bioeconomy indicators to close the data gaps. The outcome of this Deliverable provides critical input to WP3, 4, 5, and 7 of BioMonitor.
