The EU Bioeconomy Strategy sees cities becoming major circular bioeconomy hubs, where biowaste is a feedstock for safe and sustainable bio-based products. But until now very few cities and regions have developed circular bio-based economy strategies or projects for the production of innovative bio-based products.

The HOOP project aims to drive innovation in the sector by assisting 8 cities and regions, so-called Lighthouses, in the implementation of novel circular processes. By helping the Lighthouses address legal, financial, and technical barriers, HOOP will unlock significant investments in state-of-the-art biowaste and wastewater valorisation technologies. In this webinar series experts from the HOOP project will share learnings and good practices to help make urban circular bioeconomy projects a reality.


The HOOP project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement N°101000836.
