Resource Efficiency to achieve the targets of the Bioeconomy for 2020

Bella Centre, Copenhagen, Denmark, 5 June 2013

This half-day workshop was a Parallel Event hosted within the 21st European Biomass Conference and Exhibition. The workshop programme was organised by EBTP and the Renewable Heating & Cooling European Technology Platform. The aim of the workshop was to map current research, demonstration and policy related activities for biomass supply and logistics; discuss future priorities for short (2020), medium (2030) and long term (2050) targeting efficient resource mobilisation.

The meeting was organised in collaboration with the Bioboost, BASIS, Biomass Policies, Europunning, INFRES, LogistEC, OPTIMA, OPTIMISC and Sector projects.
