“Bio-based industries: sustainability benefits from circularity and closed-loop life cycles”
Neus Escobar together with colleagues from Ciemat (Spain), Technische Universität Berlin (Germany) and the University of Bologna (Italy) has proposed a session to be included at the next SETAC Europe Meeting on sustainable societies. The goal of the session is to explore potential synergies between Circular Economy and Bioeconomy, with a focus on the sustainability gains that circularity can bring to more integrated bio-based industries. more
Natalie Laibach will present her research on the 13th WICaNeM (Wageningen International Conference on Chain and Network Management) on “Sustainability and Innovation in Chains and Network” in Ancona (Italy) from 2 to 3 July 2018. As a part of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Emerging Economies track, she will be presenting on innovation in the bioeconomy.

Natalie Laibach will be attending the Annual European Academy of Management (EURAM) Conference on “Accelerating Knowledge Creation in Management” which will take place in Reykjavik (Iceland) from 19 to 22 June 2018. The goal of the conference is to exchange of ideas among economists and mangers reframing these challenges as opportunities for innovation, which is often referred to as sustainability oriented innovation (SOI), where bioeconomy seeks to belong to. There she will be presenting innovation types of the bioeconomy and first results of the Global Bioeconomy Expert Survey in the Sustainability, Circular and Green Tech Innovation track. The study is part of the STRIVE C2 Component and will hopefully initiate very interesting policy and management discussions.

Neus Escobar will be attending the 21st Annual Conference on Global Economic Analysis on “Framing the future through the Sustainable Development Goals” which will take place in Cartagena de Indias (Colombia) from 13 to 15 June 2018. The goal of the conference is to promote the exchange of ideas among economists conducting quantitative analysis of global economic issues. Particular emphasis will be placed on applied general equilibrium methods, data, and application. There she will be presenting for the first time the assessment of the global land use and greenhouse gas emission implications from targets on bioplastic consumption in leading market regions including the EU, United States, Brazil and China; based on the very regarded GTAP model. The study arises the STRIVE C2 Component and is meant to provide very interesting policy discussions.
