Support to Research and Innovation Policy for Bio-based Products (BIO-SPRI)
Considerations on: Environmental Impact (LCA), Success Stories & Risk Assessment and Top 20 Future Products
The overall objective of this project is to provide a range of new information and analyses that will enable policy-makers, the scientific community, primary producers, business enterprises and other stakeholders to make more informed decisions about innovative bio-based products.
Specifically the project will result in:
- better decisions about whether and when to consider policy measures to support innovative bio-based products;
- better decisions about where to concentrate research and innovation funding within the overall field of bio-based products;
- and better decisions about whether and when to invest in the scaled-up production of innovative bio-based products.
The project is organised in three distinct but related tasks comprising the analysis of the environmental impact of innovative bio-based products, raising awareness about commercial and financial success stories within the EU, and finally, identifying the top 20 innovative bio-based products holding the greatest promise for deployment in the coming 5 to 15 years.
Ecologic Institute is responsible for the project's communication and dissemination activities. These include a stakeholder and target group analysis, the development of a target-oriented communication and dissemination strategy, the design and production of various outreach materials, and the organisation of a final dissemination conference.
