« Being a farmer in 10 years » is the key “Innovation First” topic of the SIMA international agribusiness show in 2017. In this context, the French think tank saf agr’iDées would like to present and discuss the realities of the bioeconomy in this conference (“agr’iDébat”) with the feedback from various European stakeholders covering policy, economic, and scientific dimensions of this emerging issue. More than a concept, the bioeconomy is currently considered as strategic at different levels: the European Union, Members States, regions… What about farmers and foresters? As key stakeholders of the bioeconomy, they stand in the heart of a new sustainable economic model, which could help meet the current challenges, thanks to its diverse applications.
