7th EBRN event: Projects2Policy: Aligning outcomes from EU projects with the EU policy for bio-based and biodegradable plastics

9-12h (CET)
Online and live on YouTube.

The 7th European Bioplastics Research Network (EBRN) event “Projects2Policy: Aligning outcomes from EU projects with the EU policy for bio-based and biodegradable plastics” on 23rd November 2022 from 9 to 12h (CET) will bring together representatives of projects as well as numerous EU policy officers in the field of bio-based and biodegradable plastics to discuss recommendations to EU policy for these materials. The event is organized by the BIO-PLASTICS EUROPE project in cooperation with GLAUKOS.
• In the first session, the outcomes and main conclusions of the workshop will be presented and discussed with the EU officers., which will follow by a question-and-answer session from projects to policy officers, focusing on what is needed to shorten the gap between project results and policy.
• In the second part, outcomes form the workshops regarding how to make the project's policy recommendations more actionable by the policy makers and in general by the stakeholders. The questions will be developed and elaborated in advance in a separate workshop and then provided to the policy officers for preparation before the event.
The event aims to close the gap between research and policy and therefore contributes to a more effective exchange and sharing of knowledge.

The event will be live-streamed on the BIO-PLASTICS EUROPE YouTube channel.
