Sustainable food systems: Cluster approaches in the bio-based economy
15 November 2023 - 15 November 2023
The bio-based economy can play a fundamental role in the decarbonisation of the planet, the production of agricultural bio-inputs, healthy food, the sustainable intensification of agricultural production, and the transformation towards more sustainable & equitable food systems. Bioeconomy can strengthen local value chains by promoting the reuse of food resources, as well as by increasing efficiency and recycling through products & co-products in different biological systems. In addition, the diversification of agricultural commodity production, increased use of bio-based inputs in agriculture, and the diversification of rural incomes into rural production of bioenergy bio-based industry & environmental services can strengthen the resilience of European value chains.
The European Cluster Collaboration Platform, on behalf of the European Commission, organised the EU Clusters Talk “Bioeconomy and Sustainable Food Systems” on 15 November 2023, 8:30 – 9:45 CET. Learn more about these projects and discuss how clusters can get involved.

This event is part of regular online meetings brought to the cluster community by the European Cluster Collaboration Platform. They offer up-to-date insights into the latest industrial policies and clusters’ involvement, projects, and best practices, the latest ECCP news, and funding opportunities. The EU Clusters Talks are a space to exchange knowledge and to discuss cluster-relevant topics, which will change with every meeting.
