Linking BioBased Industry Value Chains Across the Alpine Region

At the UN and European level AlpLinkBioEco objectives align with the Bio Economy Strategy, specifically the European Bioeconomy Alliance (EUBA) objectives “to mobilise opinion leaders with a view to mainstreaming bioeconomy as viable and accepted alternative” for the fossil-fuel based economy. In addition, AlpLinkBioEco is a pan-European initiative to advance the Bio-Based Industry (BBI) objectives. 

Significant synergies are established at the regional, macro-regional and European level. Many synergies are created between project partners (PPs) on a regional level, as bio-based economy is part of many regional Smart Specialisation Strategies. At a regional level: Poly4EmI (Slovenia) or Plastic InnoCentre (BW); at a macro regional level with previous Central Europe and Alpine Space projects (CLUSTRAT; TRANSALP). Further synergies exist with ongoing bio-based economy projects in the Danube region (Made in Danube; DanuBioValNet).
