BIC Strategic Innovation & Research Agenda (SIRA)

May 2017

This Strategic Innovation and Research Agenda, or SIRA, sets out the main technological and innovation challenges to developing sustainable and competitive bio-based industries in Europe at the time of writing. It reflects the industries’ vision of a competitive, innovative and sustainable Europe leading the transition towards a bioeconomy, while decoupling economic growth from resource depletion and environmental impact. The SIRA identifies research, demonstration and deployment activities to be carried out by the Joint Technology Initiative on Bio-based industries, the BBI JU.
