We are proud to announce that EPRD Experts in cooperation with the Foundation for Education and Social Dialogue “Pro Civis”, have been involved in the implementation of an international project „BioBoosters – boosting the circular transition”. The project is a partnership of 9 stakeholders from the Baltic Sea countries: Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Germany and Poland.
The basic objective of the project is to increase the level of innovation of companies already working – or planning to work – in the bioeconomy and circular economy.
The bioeconomy refers to all sectors based on biological resources. It is an area that runs through many industries that use these resources to produce food, bioproducts, services or energy. The bioeconomy and the related idea of a circular economy aims to reduce the consumption of non-renewable energy sources, use resources sustainably, adapt to climate change and increase the competitiveness of EU economies.
The project delivers 18 international hackathons – workshops, where participants will be asked to solve specific economic, technological or social challenges proposed by industry representatives from the Baltic Sea countries, including the Świętokrzyskie region.
Participants to these hackathons will be innovators, include SMEs, start – ups, scientific groups, student teams and individuals. Innovators will be faced with challenges posed to them by large companies. This will be a unique opportunity for the participants to establish sustainable and profitable international business relationships.
The project “BioBoosters – boosting the circular transition” is co-financed by the INTERREG Baltic Sea Region 2021 – 2027 programme. Total budget is 2,8 mln EUR.
