Fostering an evidence-based bioeconomy

Il progetto BioMonitor ha l'obiettivo di creare un valido modello statistico per misurare e monitorare la bioeconomia e i suoi impatti economici, sociali ed ambientali nell'UE e negli Stati Membri, utilizzabile dai diversi stakeholder. 

Over the last twenty years, EU policy makers have prioritized the expansion of bio-based value chains through various EU policy initiatives and research programmes. As a consequence to the growing popularity of the bioeconomy in Europe, its information and statistics are lagging behind in various ways.

These include the lack of comprehensive database and statistics for bio-based industries, missing transparent methodology for bio-based data collection and a lack of integrated value chain data and indicators that illustrate the flows of different bio-based materials’ processing system.

The BioMonitor project will establish a sustainable and robust framework different stakeholders can use to monitor and measure the bioeconomy and its various impacts in relation to the EU and its Member States.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme
The UCSC team is coordinated by prof. Claudio Soregaroli
