The European Commission recently published its new Industrial Strategy for a globally competitive, green and digital Europe
Reacting in a statement, the Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC) emphasised the progress already made by the bio-based industry in realising the Strategy's objectives while emphasising its readiness to take the Strategy forward.
“The EU’s Industrial Strategy emphasises the importance of not only the physical & digital worlds coming together, but also the biological world, in which the bio-based industries operate. The circular bio-based society, that is pioneered through the public-private partnership with the EU, helps bridge these traditional divides, creating new industrial ecoystems built on innovative, cross-sectoral value chains. For the bio-based industries, the new Strategy represents a positive step forward in strengthening our sector’s progress in realising these new industrial dynamics” commented Dirk Carrez, BIC Executive Director
