Advancing a sustainable circular bioeconomy in central and eastern European countries
Research and innovation in the bioeconomy, including agriculture, is taking centre stage. The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) for the 2021-2027 period is going to be accepted by the member states with a strong focus on knowledge and innovation, including a specific objective on bioeconomy related investments. Moreover, the first work programme of Horizon Europe, under the so-called Cluster 6 on bioeconomy, is running with a record high budget of almost €2 billion.
Advancing sustainable and circular bioeconomies in central and eastern European (CEE) countries is one of the major objectives of the five year-old BIOEAST Initiative, which is an open initiative of the Visegrad Group Countries’ agricultural ministries. The governments of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, and Poland started the cooperation in 2016. Bulgaria, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Romania, and Slovenia have since joined them.
