Our objective is to improve the sustainable growth of knowledge-based agriculture, aquaculture and forestry in the bioeconomy in the CEE regions. The actions we propose to reach this objective are:

  • Initiate cooperation: establish a multi-stakeholder network to facilitate joint actions;
  • Provide an evidence base: establish data-driven support for implementation of policies;
  • Focus on research: map specific challenges for a Strategic Research Agenda;
  • Improve skills: train a new generation of dedicated multi-stakeholder actors; 
  • Develop synergies: promote regional, national, EU and international funding opportunities;
  • Increase visibility: draw attention to specific challenges of the CEE regions.
