The overall objective of the project is to establish a statistics and modelling framework for the bioeconomy that is supported by a stakeholders' platform and compatible with and implementable in existing systems of statistical and customs offices, laboratories and industries. The framework will enable the quantification of bioeconomy and its economic, environmental and social impacts in the EU and its Member States via a wide range of indictors.
You will be involved in developing a framework to measure and analyse the development of the EU bioeconomy and in developing new (and extending existing) methodologies to fill the bioeconomy data gaps and safeguard the data availability in the short, medium and long run. You will use the framework to quantitatively measure the future impacts of present day decisions on the EU bioeconomy.
