CPSBB became a member in a project for building a circular bio-based economy in the South-Central region of Bulgaria, 14 November 2022
Prof. Tsanko Gechev and Dr. Veselin Petrov represented CPSBB during a meeting dedicated to the new project MainstreamBIO. The event took place on 14 November 2022 and was organized by the Agricultural University – Plovdiv, which is the Bulgarian coordinator of the action.
The project MainstreamBIO is funded by the EU programme Horizon Europe and aims at supporting the adoption of circular bioeconomy practices and solutions across rural regions in Europe. The main objective is to regenerate rural communities by creating sustainable new value chains and business models through the deployment of local small-scale bio-based technologies.
This will stimulate the development of circular bioeconomy across various areas in Europe at local and regional scale. Ten beneficiaries from nine countries constitute the consortium of ManistreamBIO. CPSBB was invited to become a member in the project as the Center is a major research institution in the region and has the potential to contribute to its realization by providing scientific knowledge and expertise.
