Growing the Bioeconomy: Social, Environmental and Economic Implications


As the bioeconomy expands, decision-makers need up-to-date knowledge to develop strategies and manage this growth.

Environmental scientists, policy experts and scientific leaders will work together in this meeting of the minds to understand the implications of the bioeconomy. Three leading academic associations working on the life sciences in Europe and North America invite you to attend and contribute to a shared understanding of the challenges and opportunities relating to the bioeconomy.

During three half-day sessions, Growing the Bioeconomy will address the environmental, social and economic implications of the growth in this sector, following an initial overview of the latest technical developments.  The final day of the conference will be devoted to examining what our next steps should be. For further details please see the Conference Overview.

The town of Banff is located in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies. It is the ideal setting for calm reflection and stimulating discussion. 

Conference date: October 2-5, 2012

Conference location: Rimrock Resort Hotel, Banff, Alberta, Canada
