Country report - Romania

March 2018

This document, which focuses on Romania, is part of a series of publications by BIC to identify the opportunities for expanding the bio-based industry across Europe. The incentive for looking into these opportunities is the fact that the level of activities of BIC is not balanced throughout Europe. Bio-based activities heavily depend on innovation, and hence are relatively low in ‘moderate/modest innovator’ countries. This may be the result of insufficient knowledge of the potential for the bio-based industry in these countries, by actors in bio-based activities in these countries as well as by BIC. Additionally, actors in these countries may not be fully aware of the opportunities offered by BIC and the Bio-based Industries Initiative.
