TOP KBBPPS & Open-Bio Advisory Workshop on Standardization of Bio-based Products, 7 April 2014, Cologne

Stakeholders for Standardization: Share your input Research on Standardization, Labelling and Communication of Bio-based Products Advisory Workshop, 7 April 2014, Cologne


This workshop is a combined stakeholders event for the two FP7 projects KBBPPS and Open-Bio. Both are concerned with standardization research on bio-based products, labelling, sustainability issues and market uptake, with Open-Bio being the follow-up project of KBBPPS, further developing the results of the first project in terms of implementation and market application.

The event will present halfway results of KBBPPS and the planning of Open-Bio. It is intended for stakeholders from industry, policy, standardization organisations, consumer representation or other interested parties. You will hear about the intermediate research results and give ideas on next steps. Open-Bio research plans will be presented and put up for discussion. We are looking for input with a view on usability of the results, inclusion of controversial issues or prioritization. Since international outreach is a central point of these projects, we are looking forward to welcoming participants from many different countries!
