EU-funded BioWatch tool helps connect biobased research

October 28, 2018 |

In Greece, the European Union-funded project, BIOWAYS launched their latest online interactive tool in their efforts to raise people’s awareness of bio-based products and their benefits to society, called BioWatch. Through this platform, BIOWAYS aims to help other projects in the bioeconomy sector increase the awareness of their bio-based research findings.

BioWatch can be likened to an e-library. Bio-based projects are presented side by side, providing direct access to industry, political stakeholders, the media and the general public. Projects are categorized into five thematic areas: plant biomass potential, forestry biomass potential, improved agro-based production, waste valorization, and bio-energy production and refinement.

BIOWAYS is currently recruiting bio-based research projects to build a critical mass of such initiatives in its BioWatch SEED e-library. Next, the project aims to recruit more members in order to boost awareness and engagement of this useful tool.
