This is a community blog for bioeconomy experts who are interested in understanding the complexity of transitioning to a sustainable bioeconomy. It is a blog for researchers, practitioners, students and any other stakeholders interested in learning about current bioeconomy developments all over the world.
The goal is to provide an active forum for a societal conversation about bioeconomy, and the opportunities and pitfalls that may come with this transition.
This blog features three types of contributions:
- Personal contributions -usually entries about my own research project and personal opinions;
- Interviews with international experts;
- Guest entries from brilliant researchers and international experts;
I welcome trans-disciplinary contributions from experts who are keen to break down silos and exchange concepts with those coming from other backgrounds.
If you are interested in contributing to this blog with a relevant topic, please contact me.
I am a PhD candidate at the Forest and Environmental Policy Group at Albert-Ludwigs University Freiburg (Germany). In 2016 I started work on a project exploring the likeliness of transitioning to a forest-based bioeconomy. More specifically, I look at emerging timber value chains, actor networks, beliefs and coalitions in Germany and Northern Europe (Sweden and Finland). You can learn more about the project here or here
