From abstract concepts to clear ideas

Defining the bioeconomy

The bioeconomy is still an abstract concept sometimes difficult to grasp. This section brings forward definitions in 10 EU languages and materials to better understand what it involves!

According to the 2018 updated Bioeconomy Strategy and its Action Plan from EU Commission:

The bioeconomy covers all sectors and systems that rely on biological resources – animals, plants, micro-organisms and derived biomass, including organic waste – as well as their functions and principles. It includes and interlinks: land and marine ecosystems and the services they provide; all primary production sectors that use and produce biological resources (agriculture, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture); and all economic and industrial sectors that use biological resources and processes to produce food, feed, bio-based products, energy and services.
