"New pathways, strategies, business and communication models for bioplastics as a building block of a sustainable economy"

SP 1: Project communication/Project coordination

The project will be coordinated by IfBB – Institute for Bioplastics and Biocomposites.

Within the framework of the project B.A.U.M. is going to organise four workshops, which will bring together practitioners and scientists to involve challenges of the economy as well as the latest scientific insights into the project. Beyond the input of WWF, who is already member of the project's advisory board, a workshop with NGOs will include further NGO perspectives. Towards the end of the three-year project a “Political Evening” will inform political decision-makers about opportunities and challenges of bioplastics. Thereby a discussion shall be initiated about how politics, economy and science could be involved in consolidating Germany´s position as a pioneer in the field of the bio-economy.

Furthermore, B.A.U.M. will be responsible, together with its project partners, for public relation and communication, particularly with regard to the business community.
