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.

Lisa Biber-Freudenberger will present her research at the 5th European Congress of Conservation Biology (ECCB) on June 12-15, 2018 in Jyväskylä, Finland. The theme of ECCB2018 is planetary wellbeing – a concept that captures the wellbeing of people as well as the integrity and sustainability of Earth’s ecosystems.

At the second status meeting of the research program “Bioeconomy as Societal Change” previous work and already existing results will be presented by the four junior research groups. The second meeting focuses on concrete project progress and intermediate statuses.
Neus Escobar contributed to the discussion on “New frontiers in Life Cycle Inventory data: collection and modelling” with the work entitled “Carbon footprint from Brazilian soybeans based on spatially-explicit life cycle inventories, including land use change” at the 28th Annual Meeting of SETAC Europe in Rome (Italy), from May 13th to 17th, 2018.
With this, she presented the TRASE-LCA tool, recently developed together with our colleagues from the Stockholm Environmental Institute (SEI: https://trase.earth) to quantify the carbon footprint of all the supply chains embodied in the whole Brazilian soybean supply for a given year. The carbon footprint module is based on environmental data at the municipality level, together with carbon stock losses due to land conversion into soybean, obtained by remote sensing for the period 2010-2015. It is ultimately intended to inform governance decisions and deforestation and climate mitigation policies, on the one hand; and sustainable production and consumption, on the other.
