5. Bioökonomiekongress Baden-Württemberg 2024

The bioeconomy is crucial for a sustainable, resource-efficient and environmentally sound economy. It is an important building block for achieving the transformation to a sustainable circular economy and meeting societal needs in an environmentally sound way.

The transformation of the status quo challenges all of us. But where are we today? How are research findings being translated into practice?

The 5th International Bioeconomy Congress Baden-Württemberg aims to provide an answer to these questions.

Funded by the State of Baden-Württemberg, the University of Stuttgart cordially invites you!

The International Bioeconomy Congress Baden-Württemberg offers an exclusive platform for exchange between regional, national and international researchers, municipalities, innovative companies and interested users. The focus is on discussions and contributions on application-related bioeconomy topics as a contribution to sustainable economics:

  • Specialist panel discussions on “Circular bioeconomy as an integrative system approach in urban areas” and “Importance of biotechnology as a key technology in the bioeconomy”
  • Urban bioeconomy areas as innovation ecosystems for the sustainable bioeconomy - closing material cycles by developing secondary raw material sources
  • Municipalities as drivers in the urban bioeconomy
  • Success stories - successful (international) examples from the idea to implementation
  • Sustainable construction and living
  • Renewable materials for everyday products

As a special highlight, at the beginning of each congress day, a panel with high-ranking representatives from politics and economy will discuss and classify the contribution of the bioeconomy to the transformation in urban and industrial areas and as an innovation driver for rural areas.
