The European Commission organized its last European Bioeconomy Stakeholder Panel in Brussels, on March 4. Because the bioeconomy is made up of many different sectors, it is difficult for one single expert or organisation to have a complete overview. The Bioeconomy Stakeholders Panel meets that challenge by bringing together, in one group, people with different stakeholder perspectives. EATiP is the single representative of the aquaculture sector. As its primary goal, the Panel supports EU’s Bioeconomy Strategy. The Panel’s top three commitments for each sector have been related to stakeholder engagement, regional actions and education in the bioeconomy.
EATiP held a presentation on “Partnering aquaculture stakeholder groups and regions to support growth, sustainability and innovation (see attached).
