Our priorities with BIO-PLASTICS EUROPE's communications activities are:

  • to foster and encourage the deployment of innovative technologies;
  • to create a virtuous and sustainable loop in between research and innovation;
  • to ensure strong commitment of the project stakeholders, from politicians to citizens;
  • to widely spread the knowledge on the demonstrated technologies generated by the project, so that as many organisations as possible may benefit from them.
    Which is why we have created this page to provide our findings and experiences, as well as press releases through the course of the project.
