Monitoring the uptake of Advanced Technologies for bio-based industry

Online event

Advanced technologies represent a great opportunity for the European bio-based industrial sector to sustainably transform renewable natural resources into bio-based products and biofuels. The adoption of advanced technologies can help not only the economic growth but also can support in significantly reducing Europe’s dependency on fossil resources, help the EU meet climate change targets and lead to a greener and more environmentally friendly development.

In this context, the Advanced Technologies for Industry (ATI) project provides a systematic monitoring of technological trends and data on advanced technologies to properly inform about the creation and use of advanced technologies.

This event has two main objectives:

The event is addressed primarily to bioeconomy sector representatives, but all interested stakeholders are welcome to join.
