The Biocircularcities project joined the Projects2Projects workshop that was organised by the European Bioeconomy Network in cooperation with the European Commission and the Transition2Bio, BIOEASTsUP, BIObec and projects. The event took place on 5 October 2022 in Brussels as a satellite event of the EU High Level Conference “Bioeconomy – Enabling the European Green Deal in Challenging Times“. It was a great opportunity to meet with most of the relevant EU-funded projects that will support the bioeconomy innovation ecosystem for the next years.

The workshop included short presentations of success stories and actionable benefits from around 50 projects – including Biocircularcities – in the areas of bioeconomy communication, education and stakeholder engagement. 

The outcomes of the “Projects2Projects” workshop were to:

  • Facilitate the awareness and exchange of inspirational good practices stemming from H2020 projects, as well as maximising the exploitation of lessons learnt and heritage of H2020 bioeconomy projects
  • Present the objectives of the newly funded Horizon Europe projects in bioeconomy
  • Facilitate collaboration among ongoing, concluded and recently funded projects.
  • Define common action plans to improve the quality and impact of projects’ activities for the next months.

In addition, four thematic working groups took place to define a joint action plan for 2022/23. Biocircularcities was part of working group 1 “Enabling the bioeconomy ecosystem at European, national and regional level (governance perspective)”.
