The demand for food and energy is growing dramatically. Bioeconomy could be an answer to this challenge. But a biobased economy requires increased cooperation across borders and sectors. The Nordic Council of Ministers would like to offer a path towards that change by facilitating the formation of new networks and partnerships in the Baltic Sea region.
Renowned for their unique ability to collaborate on culture, research, innovation and policy, the Nordic countries build their cross-border activities on networking and knowledge sharing. The Nordic Council of Ministers and its institutions are key actors in the work of linking the countries together into regional networks – an undertaking which also extends to the Baltic and Arctic regions, EU and other venues of international cooperation.
