Circular Bioeconomy Days

27 June 2019

The Circular Bioeconomy Days will take place in Aarhus, Denmark on 25-27 June 2019 at Aarhus University in Foulum. EIT Climate-KIC and Forum for the Future will host a workshop exploring “Challenges and opportunities in developing a systemic perspective on sustainable proteins for food and feed” – on 27 June 11:00-12:00. The work will build on the systems map of alternative proteins and the Feed Compass to

  • identify action in the Nordics that enables the work towards regional protein self-sufficiency and dive into areas where more action is needed
  • provide examples of where the Nordics have led change

About the event

The conference focuses on how companies and agriculture can contribute to a transition to circular bioeconomy, which offers enormous benefits for sustainable development.

Key researchers and decision makers will discuss tools to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the potential of new protein sources for Europe. 

  • How to develop a circular bioeconomy that supports sustainable development?
  • What are prerequisites and implications of the European protein strategy?
