The European bioeconomy in 2050: four foresight scenarios | EU Science Hub | Energy Transition in Europe | |

The Commission’s 2020 Strategic Foresight Report mentions the potential of a sustainable bioeconomy, to transform Europe’s agricultural and industrial base and create new jobs, whilst enhancing our natural resources and ecosystems.

In collaboration with DG Research and Innovation, the Joint Research Centre has created an ad-hoc network of research experts to contribute to the EC’s Knowledge Centre for Bioeconomy with forward-looking analyses. A team of six core experts have built - upon intelligence from more than 50 additional specialists from across the policy, civil society, industry and academia domains - four alternative scenarios for the EU bioeconomy in 2050.
