Financing the Circular Bioeconomy: Structuring an Investment Platform to Improve Access to Finance in Europe
A market consultation conference, hosted by the European Investment Bank and the European Commission, to raise awareness of an upcoming investment platform to improve access to finance of bioeconomy companies in Europe. In partnership with Science|Business.
An EIB study, published in June 2017 (link to study), identified funding gaps in two key areas of the Bioeconomy (the bio-based industries and the blue economy) and proposed a number of recommendations - one of them being to consider the creation of a thematic investment platform.
On 6 December 2017, from 15:00 to 18:00, the workshop will consist of a live stakeholder market consultation to identify the funding needs of innovative (circular) Bioeconomy projects and the appropriate structure of the thematic investment platform that can address them.
