Cross-sectoral and multi-stakeholder collaboration - the way to ensure a sustainable bioeconomy for Europe

How bioeconomy stakeholders, in particular bioeconomy related clusters and similar initiatives support the multi-stakeholder and cross-sectoral collaboration? What are good practice examples of successful collaborations among bioeconomy sectors and stakeholders with high replication potential? What are the challenges that clusters face?

These and other questions are addressed in the document “Framework and good practices for multi-stakeholder and cross-sector interconnections”, developed under the frame of the Biobridges project.

This document analyses 18 regional and national bioeconomy or bioeconomy-related clusters and similar initiatives such as platforms, working groups and associations, in countries represented by the Biobridges consortium (Portugal, Estonia, Greece, Italy, Slovakia, Germany, Croatia and Spain).

Bioecomy -related clusters

The importance of the cross-sectoral and multi-stakeholder collaboration is widely recognised but remains a major challenge. Some other difficulties faced by bioeconomy (-related) clusters and stakeholders in the bio-based value chains are the following:

  • Lack of national funding opportunities to support the work of bioeconomy (-related) clusters and contribute to a better and more effective management and performance.
  • Limited integration of bioeconomy products in mainstream supply chains.
  • Raw material supply shortage.
  • Lack of skilled workforce.
