Effective Stakeholder and Public Engagement in the Bioeconomy – BioSTEP Conference
Over a period of three years the BioSTEP project developed participation tools to involve the public in the development of the European bioeconomy. Different types of participation were sought. During the final conference on 22 February 2018 in Brussels, the participation formats and their possible impact as well as the BioSTEP research recommendations will be presented and discussed. Registrations are possible until 15 February 2018.
The objectives of this conference are:
- To present and discuss practical lessons learned from the application of BioSTEP’s participatory tools.
- To discuss how the lessons learned from BioSTEP can inform ongoing and future activities of the EU Bioeconomy Stakeholders Panel and the update of the EU Bioeconomy Strategy and its Action Plan.
- To present and discuss recommendations for future research that emerged from the application of BioSTEP’s participatory tools.
This conference will be the final event of the BioSTEP project. For more information about this event, please visit the BioSTEP project website.
