Technology underpins economic growth and development of a more resource efficient and sustainable society. Moreover, technology is essential to analyse and monitor the progress towards these objectives. The Bio-, Nano- and Converging Technologies (BNCT) Working Party of the OECD organised two webinars to continue its longstanding work on technology-driven societal transitions such as the emerging bioeconomy.
The first webinar covered 'General policy aspects', and the second covered 'Sustainability in value chains'.
The findings from these workshops as detailed in a report and are intended to prepare and inform a more in-depth analysis of policy issues around the bioeconomy in the context of a carbon management policy paradigm.
NNFCC's Adrian Higson chaired the second workshop and contributed to the resulting report, which can be read here.
