The overall aim of ShapingBio is to support and accelerate bioeconomy innovation and the deployment of new knowledge in the EU and its member states.

ShapingBio will therefore work on creating a better understanding and information basis of the bioeconomy innovation eco-system by providing a comprehensive mapping and analysis of initiatives, structures, policy instruments and key gaps across the EU macro-regions and different sectors related to:

  • Policy and governance
  • Applied R&D and technology transfer
  • Collaboration (cross-sectoral)
  • Financing
