Circular Bioeconomy - local solutions for global challenges
The Nordic Council of Ministers and Estonian Chamber of Commerce invite to business seminar.
Why countries and companies invest increasingly in bioeconomy? Because, this is the next economic wave. The estimated value of European bioeconomy is 2 trillion euros, Finland is investing heavily in it and expecting some 100 000 new jobs, Latvia intends to boost it to 12 billion euros in a decade. Bioeconomy is a responsible approach creating value from circular use of natural resources in the form of food, feed, bio-products and energy. Thus, ranging from agri and forestry to construction, textile, fishing or pharmaceutical industry, bioeconomy transforms the core thinking of production. The greatest innovation potential is often seen in the cross-sector nature of bioeconomy, where novel value streams can be established between sectors. Digital solutions play remarkable role here as well.
We have invited speakers from Estonia and Nordic countries who will describe bioeconomy approach and highlight new business opportunities.
Come and listen in what the world is doing and what would be opportunities for Estonia.
