The main aim of the BioSTEP stakeholder consultation was to provide insights on existing (policy) challenges for the European bioeconomy and potential (policy) measures to address them. The results inform the design of three policy workshops, which BioSTEP will organise in 2016. The outcome of this process will be a list of targeted policy recommendations for the (further)
development of balanced and informed bioeconomy strategies at the regional, national and European levels.
During the period of 30 October to 22 December 2015, more than 180 stakeholders from a broad spectrum responded to the BioSTEP consultation. The two largest stakeholder groups involved in the consultation were universities/research centres and government representatives, accounting for roughly half of the stakeholders. The about 30 respondents from industry and SMEs are regarded as a satisfactory contribution of the private sector to the BioSTEP survey.
