‘BIO-ECOnomy Research Driven Innovation’
Kickoff of BIOECO–R.D.I. Project Activities
The BIOECO–R.D.I. project is implemented in the region of Western Macedonia (Greece) by the Center for Research and Technology Hellas –CERTH (partner since November 2019).
BIOECOΟ-R.D.I. aims at developing a Regional Innovation System for the ADRIatic-IOnian area based on a structured bio-economy sector through the development of Research Driven Innovation (R.D.I.) strategy at regional and national level. This strategy identifies the main critical elements that characterize the region with regard to bio-economy and puts forward recommendations in order to improve its deployment in the region.
Additionally, BIOECO-R.D.I. has as aim to create a collaborative network among ADRION regions, enterprises and academia for collaborative research, knowledge transfer and skills’ development, support the enterprises and clusters in the transition process towards an industrial model with higher level of innovation and international collaboration, according to the Circular Economy approach.
In this context, the partners will organise a number of events and meetings at international level in order to discuss further the current situation in the field, show best practices, stimulate new partnerships and thus exploit the networking potential.
BIOECO-R.D.I. managed in 2020 to join the broad Bioeconomy Network (EuBioNet), a proactive alliance of EU funded projects dealing with bio-economy promotion, communication, and support, promoted by the BIOVOICES project.
This project is supported by the Interreg ADRION Programme funded under the European Regional Development Fund and IPA II fund.
