The CEE2ACT international project aims to develop circular bioeconomy strategies and action plans through knowledge transfer and innovative governance models to achieve better-informed decision-making, societal engagement, and innovation. The project will transfer knowledge from model countries (Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Finland, Sweden), where their experience will serve the target countries of Central and Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia) to develop appropriate strategies. Knowledge transfer will be implemented through national bioeconomic centres.
FFWS CZU is a co-researcher of this project. The whole consortium includes 17 institutions from different European countries. FTA is part of the project through Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hynek Roubík.
