Innovative solutions toward the EU bioeconomy: the contribution of the insect sector to strengthening circular value chains in rural areas

Start/End date
Event type

This webinar organised by IPIFF, who promotes the use of insects and insect derived products as top tier source of nutrients for human consumption and animal feed, aims to take stock of the current EU instruments which may be mobilised by insect producers in order to stimulate the EU bioeconomy, and thereby foster the creation of ‘innovative supply chains’ and ‘green jobs’ in European rural areas.

Furthermore, the event on 7 June at 14:00 CEST explores avenues for developing new EU measures to unleash the potential of the insect sector in stimulating the bioeconomy as well as in diversifying and boosting the domestic production of proteins in Europe.

The programme of the workshop is available here. Peter Schmidt will intervene as the president of the NAT section at the EESC on the following theme: The role of bioeconomy in the transition to carbon neutrality and circularity, leaving no-one behind in a well-being economy.

Registration is now open!
