CEE2ACT aims to foster the transition towards a circular bioeconomy in Central and Eastern European countries by empowering them to develop national bioeconomy strategies and action plans through innovative governance models. By adopting a bottom-up approach, CEE2ACT will build a coalition of stakeholders committed to achieving national bioeconomy goals, including ministries, industry players, and decision-makers. CEE2ACT will establish National Bioeconomy Hubs in ten target countries, which will enable knowledge exchange, interaction on know-how and best practices, and capacity building to develop bioeconomy strategies and action plans. Digital solutions for a green transition will also be developed to provide relevant information to the National Bioeconomy Hubs. The project is expected to deepen cooperation for bioeconomy policy development in CEE2ACT countries, leading to a more informed decision-making process. It will also increase awareness and skills related to the bioeconomy, green transition drivers, and best practices on stakeholder engagement in co-creating bioeconomy roadmaps. The development of the National Bioeconomy Hubs in European countries without bioeconomy strategies, through a bottom-up approach and co-creation methods, will contribute to the green transition and climate neutrality. CEE2ACT will build trust and understanding between stakeholders, build knowledge and capacity, and build a vision and road together, providing a bridge for national bioeconomy policies. By fostering the transition towards a circular bioeconomy, CEE2ACT will contribute to achieving the European Union's climate and environmental goals, including the European Green Deal and the Circular Economy Action Plan.
