RuralBioUp - Empowering EU Rural Regions to scale-Up and adopt small-scale Bio-based solutions: the transition towards a sustainable, regenerative, inclusive and just circular bioeconomy is a Horizon Europe project which aims to strengthen the cooperation among regional key actors and knowledge holders, empowering them to establish an inclusive and long-lasting ecosystem (the RuralBioUp Regional Hubs) to support the mainstreaming of bio-based business models in rural areas. In particular, RuralBioUp will establish 9 Regional Hubs (30 stakeholders per Hub) in 6 EU countries (IT, CZ, FR, LV, IE, RO), that will co-design and implement 9 Action Plans on 18 value chains with the aim to improve the bioeconomy and boost rural development at regional and local level.
