Identifying Strategic Initiatives to Move the Bioeconomy Forward
Date: Sunday, June 16, 2013
Time: 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Location: Palais des congrès de Montréal- Room 512 BF
The purpose of this workshop is to identify policy initiatives, both public and private, that will support continued strength and growth in the bioeconomy. This becomes an important issue as the United States and many other countries enter an extended period of more abundant natural gas and crude oil production. It will be ever more important to continue ground breaking research and development efforts in order to address the longer term challenges of climate change and sustainable energy development in support of broad -based United States and world economic growth. This workshop will bring together knowledgeable stakeholders from the bioeconomy space and will identify high priority policies and initiatives designed to spur increased momentum in moving the bioeconomy forward. A brief white paper will be developed from the discussion at this workshop.
