Short description:

This report presents the outcome of an inventory of the most interesting existing tools for supporting the analysis of the different aspects of a regional bioeconomy. First, it is described how the tools were identified, subsequently, the most relevant tools were selected and these were extensively evaluated and described. The results are presented in fact sheets included in Annex A of this report. The evaluation of the tools focussed on the content (data) and the user interaction aspects. The report makes recommendations on further use of the tools by the regional stakeholders involved in this project. From a list of 26 tools that were reviewed in a quick evaluation procedure, 10 tools were shortlisted and evaluated as relevant and attractive to be included as relevant tools which can support regions in developing their bioeconomy strategies. For these tools factsheets were developed which are included in this report and which will also become part of the BSAT tool to be developed in the Power4Bio task 2.4. The factsheet is meant to support users to guide them towards the right tools for their information needs and to facilitate the use of the tools. Another 10 tools were selected for inspiration in the design of the BSAT tool in task 2.4. Also for these tools, the main inspirational aspects were reported in this report and factsheet were written.
