Vitalise Europe’s Urban Bioeconomy

Challenge: The EU Bioeconomy Strategy sees cities becoming major circular bioeconomy hubs. But up to now very few cities have developed circular bio-based economy strategies and projects for the production of innovative bio-based products.

Solution: The HOOP project supports 8 lighthouse cities & regions in developing large-scale urban circular bioeconomy initiatives that will focus on sustainably obtaining innovative bio-based products from urban biowaste and wastewater. The HOOP Urban Circular Bioeconomy Hub will create an online platform to foster knowledge exchange and replication in cities across Europe.

Duration: October 2020 – September 2024
