EBSF2023 – Sessions

The European Bioeconomy Scientific Forum 2023 – EBSF2023 has concluded, marking a resounding success. It was filled with insights, discussions, and the formation of new partnerships. Throughout four engaging sessions, a diverse range of topics was explored, underscoring the immense potential of the bioeconomy in addressing the pressing contemporary challenges.

Furthermore, EBSF2023 emphasized the societal perspective of the bioeconomy. The event marked a defining moment in the journey toward a sustainable bioeconomy and for the future of the EBU Alliance. Indeed, in addition to the highly appreciated event, the networking opportunities offered and the cooperations forged during the forum, the European Bioeconomy University network has expanded with new members, strengthening the alliance geographically and in expertise.
