M.G.A. van Leeuwen, I.J. Terluin

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterProfessional


The implementation of the European bioeconomy occurs under the encouragement of entrepreneurs and political authorities, assisted by knowledge workers (R&D). The drivers are: (1) the search for alternative resources for fossil fuels; (2) the response to climate warming by becoming as CO2 neutral as possible; and (3) the industrial demand for new functionalities offered by biobased materials and chemicals. The bioeconomy could serve as an engine of economic growth in EU regions.
