"Bioeconomy e-brochure - general background information and recommendations on how the ecosystem surrounding bioeconomy researchers can strengthen the path to innovation even more effectively" c. For the implementation of our project we receive support in 7/2017. (VII.6.) Based on our successful application submitted according to the Ministry of Agriculture's instructions.

The implemented bioeconomy e-brochure is a gap-filling document in Hungary, as the results of research and development for the utilization of industrial, agricultural and plant biomass with a decade-long tradition are available, but there are still relatively few experts on this topic in Hungary which made it difficult to access to know-hows.
