The Bio-Based Industries Consortium (BIC) invites stakeholders and society for a public consultation on the new draft strategic agenda for research and innovation for 2030 (SIRA2030).
The emerging bio-based industries sector, coordinated by the Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC), is cooperating with the European Commission to create a new public-private partnership under Horizon Europe. The objective is to build on and expand on the achievements of the existing Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU).
The SIRA2030 sets out the main technological and innovation challenges to establish a sustainable and competitive bio-based industry in Europe:
- Creating new business models to integrate strategic partners: primary and market sectors.
- Accelerating the commercialisation of sustainable solutions in a circular bioeconomy.
- Establishing carbon-neutral operations to mitigate climate change.
- Establishing new purchasing and consumption patterns for a circular bio-society.
It also reflects the Vision ‘The circular bio-society in 2050’ and forms the basis for the new PPP. The SIRA2030 is a roadmap towards realising the ambitions of that Vision with milestones for 2030.
The consultation is open until 30th April. More information about the consultation can be found here.
