What is the bioeconomy?

The bioeconomy comprises those parts of the economy that use renewable biological resources from land and sea – such as crops, forests, fish, animals and micro-organisms – to produce food, materials and energy.

What is the Bioladies Network?

Bioladies logo

The Network provides women working in the bioeconomy with opportunities to interact with each other and to share knowledge and professional contacts, promote personal development and provide mentoring. Through sharing experiences we gain a holistic view across all sectors of the bioeconomy, bring about the transfer of knowledge and spotting of opportunities. As described by one of the network members, “It is a rich source of contacts, news and links to help all of us to improve our work practices, help others, and share and feel part of something bigger than ourselves and our work.”

How can I get involved?

Women from all sectors of the bioeconomy are welcome to join the network. Currently members represent the following sectors: academia, R&D, policy information, outreach, consultancy, various industries including construction, agriculture, food, packaging, biopesticides, energy etc.
