Let the bioeconomy bloom

BLOOM was an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project that aimed to raise public awareness and interest in the bioeconomy. Through dialogue and co-creation activities, the project developed and strengthened regional networks in order to foster greater understanding about the potential of the bioeconomy. VA (Public & Science) was one of 12 European partners in this three-year project, which ended in December 2020.

The aim of the project was to boost European citizens’ knowledge and awareness of Bio-economy research and innovation. How can we be more environmentally friendly, reduce our use of fossil fuels and reduce waste through the use of innovative bio-based raw materials?

The project aimed to stimulate activities and dialogue about the bioeconomy at both a regional and EU level.

The five regional hubs focused on three bioeconomy topics:

VA worked together with JAMK, the University of Applied Sciences, in Jyväskylä in Finland in the Nordic Hub.

The Nordic Hub’s objectives:

Through dialogue with different stakeholders and public engagement activities:

  • Raise awareness and enhance knowledge of the bioeconomy and forest-based materials and products among Finnish and Swedish citizens.
  • Strengthen the Finnish & Swedish bioeconomy community by engaging NGOs, policy makers, business, research and innovation sector, the education sector and civil society organisations.
