Benefit from previous and current work to creat a coherent and stimulating 'environment' for a sustainable bio-based industry in Europe (CSA)
Specific challenge: Coordination and support actions (CSAs) funded by the 6th and 7th Framework Programmes, Horizon 2020 including the BBI JU, various Interreg and other European programmes have addressed many aspects related to the bio-based industry. These include: standardisation;
awareness and communication; identifying regulatory hurdles; technological and non-technological road-mapping; foresight and market studies; biomass availability; sustainability; and analysing biobased
industries in Member States and regions. Current CSAs continue to address similar and different aspects to help the bio-based industry.
However, there is no ‘global overview’ of the results of completed work, the objectives of ongoing actions or a gap analysis versus long-term objectives. Moreover, these results and analyses are not collected or made available centrally for use in follow-up and future work. More needs to be done to communicate these results to the relevant stakeholders and a wider public.
