People and Networks Matter: Enabling Sustainable Bioeconomy Transition is a conference held at Innovation Park and Karlstad University, 27-28 March 2019. It is a co-production between Nordregio, CRS - Centre for Regional Studies at Karlstad University, UIO TIK – Centre for Technology, Innovation and Culture at University of Oslo, LUKE – Natural Resources Institute Finland, NIBIO – Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research, Region Värmland, Paper Province, Nordic Forest Research (SNS), Nordic Agri Research (NKJ) and Ingoskog – Innovation for green transition in the forest.
Transforming the current economy into a ‘new’ bioeconomy needs changed institutional frameworks at regional and national level, sensitive to and inclusive of place-based knowledge. New innovative products and services continue to emerge, which will further increase the demand for biomass. This transition leads to both an increased demand for land-based biomass and its multiple use. Important questions emerge: How to use the land? How can different interests be combined? Overall, we need a better and nuanced understanding of the societal impacts of this transition in different contexts and for different stakeholders. This conference seeks to better understand the role of people and networks in this transition. The conference is a place for:
• Interaction between practitioners, policy makers and academics
• Joint reflection and development of a roadmap, strategies and policy recommendations to enable smoother transition towards bio-based economies in the Nordic countries
• Practitioners to learn from good business cases and practices
• Networking: Meet businesses, academia & policy makers working for sustainable bioeconomy transition
