Guide international cooperation for the development of a global and sustainable bioeconomy

Bioeconomy needs to be part of future-oriented public debates at international level. Various global governments are in the process of implementing their own bioeconomy strategies and have aligned to create an International Bioeconomy Forum (IBF).

The aim of IBF is to provide a flexible multilateral instrument for international cooperation, specific to the bioeconomy, capable of adapting to emerging global needs and to contribute to the achievement of global objectives.

The general concept of the IBF is a co-owned platform, organised in ad-hoc working groups, to guide international cooperation on a limited number of R&I priorities and horizontal activities which are crucial for the development of a global, sustainable bioeconomy and addressing related global challenges (like sustainable food security, etc.).
