Workshop on "Bioeconomy Information System and Observatory (BISO) - Environmental Sustainability Assessment"
2 October 2015
This workshop, which has been co-organised at own initiative by the European Commission – Joint Research Centre, Institute for Environment and Sustainability, Sustainability Assessment Unit and Imperial College – London, Centre for Energy Policy & Technology, aimed at presenting and discussing with both EC and non-EC stakeholders:
- The achieved progress since the last workshop (November 2014) in the environmental sustainability assessment of bioeconomy chains by sectors (food & feed, bio-products and bioenergy);
- The so-identified gaps and consequently – the indicative plans for the future;
More information about the workshop can be found HERE.
S2Biom 3rd consortium meeting
29-30 September 2015
Webinar on WGCB Activity Group 4 “Towards sustainable modern wood energy development”
24 June 2015
As it has been discussed and decided at the previous GBEP Steering Committee meeting in Rome on November 2014, the webinar has been organized. It focused on the recommendations of the report “Towards sustainable modern wood energy development”, presented to the last GBEP Working Group on Capacity Building, and the discussion how to address the provided recommendations.
Conference: Towards a Sustainable Bioeconomy - Innovative Methods and Solutions for the Agriculture and Forest Sectors
21-23 October 2015
The conference included six scientific sessions:
- Transition towards bioeconomy: changing production systems and consumption patterns
- Innovative climate change mitigation strategies for the forest-based sector
- Assessing sustainability in forestry, agriculture and related bioenergy systems
- Optimal forest operations for a sustainable biomass supply
- Environmental challenges for the bioeconomy
- Economic and social challenges for the bioeconomy
The Sciency-Policy-Practice interaction day (22 Oct) focused on the topic Cascade use of biomass.
Is cascading use of biomass a superior concept in the context of a sustainable bioeconomy? Can we prove it is beneficial for land managers, industry and society? Are there winners and losers? What are the drivers or barriers to cascade use? Do we need additional rules and regulations? These are some of the questions to be discussed in a series of interactive sessions – see more details in the day’s programme.
IEE-II Bioenergy Projects Conference

9th International Bioenergy Conference
21 October 2014
The three sister projects of S2Biom (INFRES, EuroPruning and LogistEC) organized a common workshop on storage and densification of biomass. More information about the programme is given HERE.
Workshop on Developing and Reviewing Assumptions and Scenarios on Bioenergy demand and Biomass Use
6 October 2014
The workshop offered an important opportunity to give input to and discuss assumptions and scenarios in the ‘Resource efficiency impacts of future EU bioenergy demand’ (ReceBio) project. The purpose of the day was:
• To present initial analysis from the study for comment
• To discuss how this can be developed into a concrete basis for modelling work, to be completed later in 2014 and 2015.
S2Biom 2nd Consortium Meeting

S2Biom First PIAC (Policy and Industry Advisory Committee) meeting
13 February 2014
The meeting brougth together PIAC members and WP leaders of the S2Biom project to discuss and interact on the work plan for 2014. Input of members of the PIAC team has been vital to the project and resulted in advice on the strategy of the project.
18-20 September 2013
The Kick-off-meeting of the S2Biom project took place on 18-20 September in Berlin Germany, where under the coordination of FNR the consortium fine-tuned the work programme for the upcoming three project years. The Kick-off-meeting has been an internal meeting for the consortium only.
