Under the auspices of the Slovenian EU Council Presidency and the Hungarian Visegrad Group Presidency, on 27 September 2021 the BIOEAST Initiative is organising an online BIOEAST Foresight Conference, a high-level foresight event on positioning sustainable and circular bioeconomies in Central and Eastern Europe to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. 

The conference (in English) is intended for policy-makers, experts, and stakeholder representatives from BIOEAST countries and other EU Member States, as well as EU institutions.

Its objectives are:

  • to present the BIOEAST Foresight Report

  3. forestry
  4. fresh water
  5. biochemical and biomaterials
  6. bioenergy and
