PROGRAM / 03
Bioeconomy and governance / CTFC

The study and promotion of the bioeconomy is closely related to the research, innovation and the competitiveness of value chains, mitigation of climate change and economic and social development in rural areas.

The demand and markets for emerging products requires the establishment of new processes and bioproducts (cross-laminated wood, proximity biomass circuits, truffles, mushrooms, cork, aromatic and medicinal plants, etc.), aiming to fit the bioeconomy into the circular economy and promote new policies
