14.04.2016 12:10

7 June 2016, Helsinki, Finland

The EU is updating its bioeconomy strategy in 2016, and a number of Member States are working on their own national strategies. The EU is also planning its climate policy, and how to tread biomass-based bioenergy in the future. All these are central to the future development of the forest-based bioeconomy. 

Our ThinkForest event, Building the Bioeconomy: insights from European strategies focuses on:

What can we learn from EU and national bioeconomy strategies?
What are the future prospects for the forest-based bioeconomy?
This ThinkForest event is chaired by Göran Persson, ThinkForest president and Esko Aho, EFI Special Advisor.
Keynote speakers include Olli Rehn, Minister of Economic Affairs, Finland and Ibrahim Baylan, Minister for Energy, Sweden.
