BioGov.net is a project that engages 10 experienced partners to mobilize local resources and stakeholders in eight EU states (Estonia, Italy, the Netherlands, Greece, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Portugal and Germany). The project aims strategically to support the establishment of innovative governance models in bioeconomy to achieve better-informed decision-making processes, social engagement of all actors and uptake of sustainable innovations in bioeconomy.
With the specific objective to provide validated guidelines for bioeconomy training and mentoring based on case studies from 8 EU regions, BioGov.net will:
– identify and assess the perspective good practices and successful case studies for novel training framework,
– complete an assessment based on regional capacities, opportunities, barriers and potentials;
– define regional needs and expectations, local feedstock availabilities and use, governance barriers, social and economic landscape.
– identify needs for skills required by the novel business models and related social measures to enable consumers, industry and public bodies to switch to socially and environmentally responsible behaviour within their spheres (e.g. regulatory measures, corporate responsibility initiatives, education and training).
Based on the collected materials, analysis and Quintuple Innovation Helix approach, the project develops guidelines for the setup of the modern and inclusive training and mentoring framework in specific European regions targeting the local bio-systems, regulators and policies for building the bridge between knowledge, skills, bioeconomy and good governance.
