Overcoming collaboration challenges between the feedstock owners and bio-based industries

The development of new cross-sectoral bio-based value chains requires synergies and cooperation between various sectors, both along and across the value-chains, bringing all actors together, mobilizing the innovations and pulling the market by bringing new innovative products and solutions.

However, the interaction among processes and stakeholders between previously unconnected sectors, carries various challenges and barriers towards the development of new value chains and bio-based business models.

Based on the Biobridges project findings, these challenges could be categorized in terms of feedstock, industry, and market and may vary among the different stakeholders that represent suppliers, industry, brands and end-users. Moreover, in the value chain, each type of stakeholder could be both a provider and a client, facing specific challenges per case.

This particular co-creation workshop will seek for the new ideas and solutions on how to overcome collaboration challenges between the feedstock owners and bio-based industries.
