The bioeconomy can be a catalyst for sustainable systemic change and transition, tackling key economic, societal and environmental challenges faced by EU Member States (MS). For bioeconomy transitions to occur there is a need for policy to support interactions among multiple actors, including businesses, users, scientific communities, policy-makers, social movements and interest groups. Bioeconomy transitions will also involve the need to choose between alternative visions of the future and how to get there, pointing to the importance of public engagement to foster consultation and deliberation. In this light, bioeconomy transitions will also involve the need to prepare for unexpected consequences and new emerging issues which implies a need for both exploratory, analytical approaches (e.g. horizon scanning), as well as adaptive governance. In this context, targeted national bioeconomy strategies and/or action plans are necessary both to aid the addressing of the European Green Deal (EGD) but also to develop benefits and opportunities for rural, coastal, regional and urban areas in each MS. Based on the feedback from experts in the Mutual Learning Experience (MLE), and taking into account the principles of good governance and systems transition approaches, 10 Key Policy Messages have been identified to help guide national bioeconomy strategy and/or action plan development.
