The BioGoLocal study trip to Norway

Innlandet fylkeskommune (incl. Inlandets Teknikpark) – county strongly focusing on bioeconomy and circularity. Kongsvinger kommune, marketing itself as “the green heart of Norway”. Våler kommune – the center for Circular Soloer “Sirkulær Solør”. Elverum kommune being the capital of Norwegian forestry. Ringsaker kommune – the residence of Norwegian Wood Cluster. Hurdal kommune with their eco-village.

All the aforementioned organizations, structures and sites important for the Norwegian local and regional bioeconomy have been visited within the scope of BioGoLocal project by politicians, administration officers and representatives of businesses from Starachowicki and Sandomierski Counties. These were very valuable lessons for the Polish visitors.

It will about time to put all the observations, lessons learned and worked out concepts to the paper. The report “Implementing Bioeconomy in Practice at Local Level” coming out this spring.

The project “BioGoLocal – implementation of circular bioeconomy at the local level” is 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.
