Short description:

The BioMonitor project aims to understand the status of current modelling tools for offering policy insights for the
creation of a vibrant European Bioeconomy by 2030 and 2050 and to provide recommendations based on improved
modelling capacity within the BioMonitor Model Toolbox (Infopack #1).
The research performed in the project evaluates the alignment of a selective mix of current modelling capacities
(Varacca et al., 2020) with a need of assessment of policy interventions relevant to the EU bioeconomy including
their capabilities to address the five core objectives of the European Bioeconomy Strategy.
Existing gaps are highlighted with respect to surrounding policy goals inadequately answered or modelled, as well as
bioeconomy sectors, value chains, and indicators that are insufficiently captured. Underlining the barriers between
modelling research and policy-making groups will facilitate better collaboration of future policy agendas and strategies
through openness and transparency, data development, and targeted interventions for value chain-based challenges.
