Bioeconomy Changemakers Festival

VALZEO is pleased to announce our participation in the Bioeconomy Changemakers Festival, which will take place in Brussels on March 13-14, 2024.

The Bioeconomy Changemakers Festival is set to take place in the vibrant city of Brussels on 13th and 14th March 2024. This highly anticipated event is poised to bring together experts, innovators, and policymakers from across the globe, with the aim of driving forward the bioeconomy revolution.

The festival promises an engaging platform for individuals and organizations to share their knowledge, exchange ideas, and forge collaborations that will accelerate the transition to a sustainable and circular bio-based economy. Organized by the European Commission’s Research and Innovation Directorate-General, this event will serve as a catalyst for transforming our economic systems and steering them towards a greener future.

The VALZEO project is a European initiative that aims to transform the use of agro-industrial wastes through the development of innovative zeolite-based composite materials. With funding from the Horizon Europe Framework, our project seeks to leverage the potential of these materials in environmental remediation and biofuel production, making a substantial contribution to the transition towards a sustainable and circular bioeconomy.

The bioeconomy is an emerging field that seeks to harness the potential of biological resources, such as crops, forests, and waste materials, to develop sustainable alternatives to fossil-based products and processes. By transitioning from a linear economy to a circular one, the bioeconomy aims to reduce our dependence on finite resources, minimize greenhouse gas emissions, and promote the efficient use of natural resources.

Through cutting-edge research, technological advancements, and innovative business models, the bioeconomy has the potential to revolutionize industries such as agriculture, forestry, food production, energy, and healthcare. The Bioeconomy Changemakers Festival aims to showcase the latest breakthroughs and success stories in these sectors, highlighting the tangible impact that the bioeconomy can have on our daily lives.

The festival will include a diverse range of activities, including interactive workshops, keynote speeches, panel discussions, and networking sessions. Participants will have the opportunity to explore topics such as bio-based materials, sustainable agriculture, bioenergy, biotechnology, and circular economy models. The festival will also feature an exhibition area where companies, startups, and research institutions can showcase their innovations and solutions.

In addition, the Bioeconomy Changemakers Festival will provide a platform for policymakers and stakeholders to discuss strategies, policies, and regulatory frameworks that support the growth of the bioeconomy. By fostering dialogue between government representatives, industry leaders, and civil society, the festival aims to stimulate the development of enabling environments that nurture bioeconomy initiatives.

Brussels, as the chosen location for this festival, is an ideal host city due to its position as the seat of the European Union institutions. The city’s vibrant research and innovation ecosystem, coupled with its commitment to sustainability, make it the perfect backdrop for this groundbreaking event. Moreover, the festival’s central location in Brussels ensures easy accessibility for participants from all across Europe.

The Bioeconomy Changemakers Festival in Brussels on 13-14 March 2024 is a milestone event that will drive forward the bioeconomy revolution and foster collaboration among changemakers from around the world. By bringing together diverse perspectives and expertise, this festival has the potential to accelerate the transition towards a sustainable future. Mark your calendars and join us in Brussels for this remarkable gathering of bioeconomy pioneers, as we work together to shape a greener and more prosperous world.
