This will be the subject of the event. The debate will bring together different Italian start-ups involved in the Bioeconomy, with a presentation of their business, together with a group of high level speakers to discuss how the bioeconomy can address challenges such as resource scarcity, sustainable agriculture and climate change, looking at what regions and countries are doing to promote the bioeconomy and at the role of policymakers in ensuring that Europe keeps the lead and translates its potential into reality. With a special focus on Italy. Intesa Sanpaolo, the major Italian bank group and one of the largest in Europe, will present the first Report on the Bio-based Economy in Europe. The event is one of the event organized in the framework of the European biotech week, that celebrates biotechnology in Europe from October 6 to October 12.
