The core of Bioeconomy For Change’s work is related to the bioeconomy, focused on the following topics: ingredients for human food and animal feed, biomass resources, bio-molecules, bio-based materials and bio-energy.

These strategic themes are the focus of dedicated committees and working groups who exchange information, work collaboratively and help project development.

Agricultural biomass, forestry biomass, marine biomass, bio-waste, microbial biomass


Sustainable resource production, protection of farming systems, reconciling food and non-food uses, ecosystem services, local sectors maximising the value of biomass


Innovative agricultural systems, soil fertility management, recycling of residual products, biological inputs, biological control measures, precision agriculture, digital agriculture, agricultural machinery
