Bioeconomy

Bioeconomy is the production of renewable biological resources and the conversion of these resources (including waste streams) into value added products. Its sectors and industries have strong innovation potential due to their use of a wide range of sciences, enabling and industrial technologies, along with local and tacit knowledge.1 The forest bioeconomy focuses on innovations in the circular use of forest products and resources. In the Mediterranean, forest bioeconomy has a strong focus on business models for Non-Wood Forest Products, recreational uses of forests, and social inclusion.
