EURAGRI Conference 2018:
Cross Sectoral Opportunities in the Bio-economy and the Implementation of the SDGs

24th-25th of September 2018

Science, technology and research within the field of the bio-economy and the agro, food, aqua, and forest sector(s) are vital means to reach the SDGs.

  • How do we know that the approaches chosen are relevant?
  • How do we coordinate approaches with important actors outside the research system?
  • How can we include an improved and a continued reflexivity function into the overall process?
