SCAR Bioeconomy Strategic Working Group
The SCAR Bioeconomy Strategic Working Group is a successor to the SCAR Strategic Working Group on Sustainable Bioresources for a Growing Bioeconomy (SCAR SWG SBGB).
The Bioeconomy encompasses the production of renewable, biological resources and the conversion of these resources and waste streams into value added products, such as food, feed, bio-based products, including chemicals, and bioenergy. The added value of the bioeconomy lies in the integration of these different fields. There is a need for a strategic discussion between Member States and the EU Commission what the further development of a sustainable bioeconomy means for research and innovation, policy alignment and regulation. The BSW has the ambition to oversee and work together with different initiatives on national and European level, and to use this position to give advice on actions needed from a Member States perspective, especially related to research.
