The area of Bioeconomy has as objective the development of new bio(nano)technologies and bio(nano)products for the capitalization of bioresources and the sustainable intensification of their production. Applied and fundamental-oriented research contributes to the development of knowledge in the field and to increasing the visibility of the institute, substantiates the technological transfer and open innovation and provides the necessary framework for the training of new researchers. The field is structured on the following transdisciplinary directions:
Integrated use of the next generation plant biostimulants for an enhanced sustainability of field vegetable high residue farming systems
Transdisciplinary approach for development of technological solutions for target compounds recovery from agro side-streams
Biowaste valorisation is an attractive approach in the framework of the EU Waste Management policies and the development of a circular economy.
