BIOMODEL4REGIONS: Supporting the establishment of the innovative governance models in the bio-based economy

Title of the project: Supporting the establishment of the innovative governance models to achieve better-informed decision making processes, social

engagement and innovation in the bio-based economy


Funding source: Horizon Europe

Implementation period: 07/2022 – 06/2025


The project should bring a better-informed decision-making process, social involvement and innovations to support and strengthen the EU and create an international scientific-political link for achieving the goals in the field of sustainable development through:

  • supporting the development of regional/local bio-based economy strategy plans,
  • development of new models to enable consumers, industry/producers and public authorities to a societal switch towards environmentally responsible behaviour through bio-based products and services, and
  • development of best practice guidelines for local operators and innovation developers, supporting climate-neutrality and the improvement of bio-products and services with a low environmental footprint.

Building on the knowledge and experiences brought by years of research and studies in the field of bioeconomy, the BIOMODEL4REGIONS project strives to put into practice proven best practises and successful initiatives. For the development of appropriate governance models deploying bio-based solutions, BIOMODEL4REGIONS will carry out an analysis in 6 pilot regions from different areas of Europe (Northern, Southern, Eastern and Central-Western EU), which will allow to propose such strategies that will be tailored to regional conditions, taking into account potentials, obstacles, opportunities and capacities, using raw feedstocks, infrastructure, investments, human skills, innovations activities and community knowledge in the given area.
