International Conference

BioEUParks partners organised an International mainstreaming Conference to share the results of the project, and contribute for the European debate on the sustainability of solid biomass exploitation. The Conference entitled “Solid Biomass in European Protected Areas: Sustainable Supply Chain Models” took place at the Committee of the Regions, Brussels, on the 3rd of March 2016.

The conference was hosted by Roby Biwer (member of the Committee of the Regions and rapporteur of Fitness check for Nature Directives) and had the participation of important keynote speakers coming from European organisations:

The conference was divided in two main panels, the first explored possible link between Nature Conservation and Biomass Exploitation and the second focused on the contribution of protected areas to the EU Energy policy.  Over 40 delegates joined the conference and contributed to the discussion.
