The GO-GRASS project, funded under the Horizon 2020 programme, is organising a Green Week partner event entitled “Fostering grassland opportunities, circular business models and skills for resilient rural communities”.
This public event will take place on Thursday 8 June, from 14:00 to 16:00 (CET), online on Zoom.
At the occasion of the EU Green Week 2023, which focuses on 2023 on the topics of skills for sustainable, resilient and socially fair communities, this EU Green Week partner event aims to discuss new circular business models and skills for resilient rural communities, including specific best practices such as green biorefineries and relevant funding instruments.
The event will enrich the GO-GRASS policy recommendations presented in the draft White Paper for grassland opportunities. It is a chance to exchange on policy gaps at EU level, while identifying bottlenecks and solutions to support the circular bioeconomy in rural areas and upskill farmers and rural advisors.
The webinar draft agenda is available here (pdf). More speakers and panellists will be announced soon.
The GO-GRASS project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement N°862674. This event is organised by ATB (Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering), Greenovate! Europe, ESCI (European Science Communication Institute) and the GO-GRASS consortium as a Partner Event of EU Green Week 2023.
