Project results should contribute to the following expected outcomes:

  • Industrial competitiveness, strategic autonomy and resource independence of bio-based value chains of EU member states and/or Associated countries.
  • Improved circularity and resource efficiency via practical application of the circular (bio)economy concept, maximising the valorisation of residual biomass.
  • Market uptake and growth of scalable circular bio-based solutions for high value applications.
  • Availability of a broader range of bio-based products meeting market requirements
  • Income and business opportunities diversification for stakeholders and actors (including fisheries and aquaculture) in the bio-based sectors
  • New skilled job opportunities and investments in the bio-based sectors, particularly in coastal areas
  • Social acceptance of circular bio-based solutions and products.
  • Significant contribution to the objectives of the R&I Mission ‘Restore our Oceans and Waters by 2030’ and the Sustainable Blue Economy Partnership
