Biobased and social innovation to revitalise European local communities

BIOLOC is financed by the Horizon Europe Programme. It aims to promote social innovation and inclusion as enabling factors that, contributing to revitalising local communities, could accelerate the transition to a circular bioeconomy in 12 European regions (IT, NL, ES, DE, GR, BG, SK, SL, HR, HU, RO, CZ). 

Based on extensive interdisciplinary research and cross-sectoral analyses, BIOLOC will elaborate on concepts and solutions that will trigger positive cascading effects on communities by fostering a participatory and inclusive approach to develop resilient innovative biobased activities open to the contribution of socially disadvantaged or marginalised groups.

BIOLOC will deliver innovative and inclusive business models and drive the establishment of permanent public-private multistakeholder hubs to pioneer a social trialogue on innovative and inclusive circular bioeconomy as a leveraging factor for sustainable and resilient local communities.
