The AlplinkBioEco project consortium (co-financed by the Alpine Space INTERREG programme) groups France Clusters, Plastipolis and their partners, from Germany, Austria, Italy, Slovenia and Switzerland, met in Ljubljana on 12 and 13 November to draw up an evaluation of actions carried out since the launch of the project just over 6 months ago.
A document presenting the strategies and regional tools in favour of bio-economy in Alpine Space regions as well as their clusters in the field is in its final phase.
Moreover, the partners in the projects are preparing key descriptors of businesses active in bio-economy and able to get involved in the innovative trans-regional chains of value that are to be created as an outcome of the project, namely: wood, agriculture, food and pharmaceutical packaging and chemistry. A software program meant to enable made-to-measure relationship building amongst them is being written and due to be tested early 2019. By facilitating such networking amongst the Alpine Space bio-economy players, the AlplinkBioEco project will play its part in the launch of high added value bio-economy applications and products.
