As part of FEB Zagreb & Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts International Conference on Economics of Decoupling (ICED 2020), our expert in bioeconomy Biljana Kulišić, PhD, will present the results of the research paper “POSITIONING THE CROATIAN LINEAR BIOECONOMY TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE AND CIRCULAR BIOECONOMY”, as the lead author.

The paper investigates political, economic, social, and technological (PEST) factors of the Croatian linear bioeconomy. As a part of the bioeconomy strategy development, the first Croatian Interministerial Committee for Bioeconomy in Croatia (February 2019 – May 2020) performed a PEST analysis, based on the features of the current Croatian linear bioeconomy and the novel policy framework that the European Green Deal brings. The question asked was to position Croatian bioeconomy within the challenges and opportunities that the EU vision for bioeconomy poses.
