Is Biotechonomy Development Attractive for Nordic Countries and Baltic States?

On April 26th 2016 the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Office in Latvia in cooperation with Riga Technical University is organising an International conference regarding recent developments of bioeconomy and biotechonomy in the Nordic and Baltic states. A proper research and analysis of sustainable development of bioeconomy is a crucial prerequisite for substituting fossil resources with bio-resources and producing high value added products. In order to implement it, we need not only innovations and technologies but also skills and competences, and supportive policy frameworks.Jukka Teräs, Senior Research Fellow from Nordregio will talk about Bioeconomy in the Nordic countries – overview, regional insights and national policies.
