what we do

Biobased and social innovation to revitalise European local communities

project is funded under Horizon Europe Programme and it aims at advancing the role and impact of social innovation to revitalise European local communities and accelerate the transition to the circular bioeconomy (CBE).

BIOLOC will achieve this ambitious goal through comprehensive methodological work and specific actions that the project will implement in 12 locations in Spain (Aragon), Greece (Western Macedonia), Bulgaria (Plovdiv), Slovakia (Nitra), Slovenia, Croatia (Adriatic), Hungary (North), Romania (West), Czechia, the Netherlands (Apeldoorn), Germany (Bad-Wurtenberg), and Italy.

After assessing biomass potentials and CBE value chains in participating regions and analysing barriers that hinder the engagement of the socially disadvantaged in related economic activities, BIOLOC will elaborate on innovative solutions and business models and transpose them into region-specific toolsets

BIOLOC

Main activities

BIOLOC will provide specific recommendations and tailored measures to foster the socio-economic impact of the CBE on a broader population. To this aim, permanent public-private multi-stakeholder working tables will be established (BIOLOC Hubs) to discuss innovative and inclusive CBE as a leveraging factor for sustainable and resilient local development.
