The legacy of the COOPID project lives as well in the Rural Bioeconomy Alliance (RBA): a cluster of European-funded projects aimed at accelerating and supporting the development of circular rural Bioeconomy initiatives in the EU.

Beyond the full pack of COOPID communication and dissemination materials, videos and events, COOPID opened an interactive platform with maps, surveys and forums.

A review: the primary producer in COOPID

Primary producers have a key role in the COOPID project, they are at the core of our activity! Bellow, key areas of interest for primary producers addressed by the project:

The bigger picture in the bioeconomy

The bigger picture

Challenges faced by COOPID

Meaningful participation of the primary sector in the bioeconomy is lacking

Currently, bioeconomy starts on the fields, yet meaningful participation of the primary sector is currently challenged: this is an issue COOPID has addressed.

Barriers to the uptake of sustainable bio-based business

COOPID worked to mobilise EU primary producers to stimulate the wide uptake of inclusive and sustainable bio-based business models in the European primary production sector & increase its competitivity.

The bioeconomy and the circular economy are still abstracts concepts

The EU primary sector struggles to identify successful business models and strategies to replicate. It is challenging to transform into an efficient, sustainable and circular business model in the bioeconomy.

What was the COOPID strategy?

COOPID has developed a 4 level Knowledge Transfer Strategy to support the development of stronger bioeconomy business models within the European primary sector, connecting selected effective practices with active practitioners (primary producers) :

  • Level 1: business success stories selection and showcases organisation to selected primary producers-

  • Level 2: development of further workshops and activities among third primary producers

  • Level 3: interactive dissemination to primary producers, academia and industry

  • Level 4: communication activities to broader audiences.
