New expert publication in the field of bioeconomy!

The Foundation for Education and Social Dialogue PRO CIVIS presents the new report “BioGoLocal – Implementing a circular bioeconomy at the local level”. The publication was prepared by experts from the PRO CIVIS Foundation and the Norwegian company Ressurs og Miljø AS from Oslo. The report also includes analyzes by Professors of the Warsaw University of Life Sciences (Institute of Wood Sciences and Furniture) and the University of Economics in Krakow (Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovation).

The report addresses the issue of creating, developing and operating local circular bioeconomies. The authors present subjective and functional conditions, which should ultimately exist within a given territorial structure that wants to shape its economic, environmental and social development based on the concept of circular bioeconomy. The reference point for the analyzes is the Norwegian bioeconomy and good practices in the field of regional and local cooperation, leading to creating added value. The report also presents two territorial case studies, i.e. Starachowice and Sandomierz counties. The potential for bioeconomic development is presented in articles on forest and wood bioeconomy (Starachowice poviat) and agri-food bioeconomy (Sandomierz poviat).

Among the monographic articles available in the publication, the studies devoted to the bioeconomy in strategic documents of the Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship and to the environmental and climatic conditions of the Starachowice and Sandomierz counties are worth highlighting. The report concludes with two articles devoted to bioeconomic entrepreneurship, which is a key element of local and regional development – an original study on “a hub as a structural response to the multi-sectoral nature of the bioeconomy” and a detailed analysis of the motivation of entrepreneurs undertaking business activities in bioeconomy sectors.

As emphasized by the CEO of the PRO CIVIS Foundation, Mr. Tadeusz Pęczek: “The prepared report is a concrete contribution to the pragmatic implementation in Poland of the bioeconomic assumptions of the European Green Deal. We are convinced that it will make it easier for Polish regions, counties and municipalities to take advantage of the development opportunities offered by locally available biomass resources.”

The report has been prepared within the project “BioGoLocal – implementation of the circular bioeconomy at the local level”, financed by the Fund for Bilateral Cooperation of the Financial Mechanism of the European Economic Area 2014-2021 and the Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2014 – 2021 (Call: ” BILATERAL INITIATIVES IN THE AREA OF GREEN TRANSITION BETWEEN POLAND AND NORWAY). The project was implemented by the consortium of the  PRO CIVIS Foundation and Ressurs og Miljø AS from Oslo.
