SCAR conference on research and innovation policy, and the role of SCAR in the European Bioeconomy

This conference will take place in Tallinn, Estonia on 4 and 5 December 2017. It will be organised by the the Estonian Ministry of Rural Affairs in cooperation with the Coordination and Support Action CASA that aims to develop a consolidated common agricultural and wider bioeconomy research agenda within the European Research Area.

The conference brings together policy stakeholders, representatives of the Standing Committee of Agricultural Research (SCAR) and chairs of the SCAR Strategic Working Groups and Collaborative Working Groups to jointly build a stronger EU bioeconomy research policy. The objective is to deliberate the findings of recent policy, foresights, and reviews to increase the impact of SCAR outcomes at national levels. Recommendations will be made to increase the participation of member states in SCAR activities, thus promoting a more effective coverage of the wider bioeconomy and the development of more successful national bioeconomies. The focus will lie on the inclusiveness and representativeness of member states and of bioeconomy areas within SCAR, on identification of points for attention for SCAR and for the further implementation of CASA.
