Open Bioeconomy Week logo

The very first international Open Bioeconomy Week will be organized on 29th and 30th September 2020 online. The week has an ambitious target to become an annual event that brings together the latest research and industrial practice in the digitalization of bioeconomy. In today’s world, one does not exist without the other.

Open Bioeconomy Week is supported by the Regional Council of Häme, with the regional enterprises and other organizations working within the bioeconomy sector. Together with HAMK, the organizing committee of the event consist of leading national research and innovation organizations, such as Aalto University, Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke), VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE), SYKLI Environmental School of Finland and University of Helsinki.

The conference aims to highlight the current research innovations, trends and future of bioeconomy through the lens of digitalization and data utilization. The key focus is to highlight the paradigm shift digitalization can bring in the field of bioeconomy. To accomplish this, the event aims at bringing different academics, researchers, stakeholders, policymakers, business representatives and the society to discuss and understand the role and the impact digitalization can make in the development of bioeconomy and hence towards a sustainable future.

Open Bioeconomy Week is built around the themes of utilization of digitalization in the development of bioeconomy research, innovations and business. 

The subthemes will change annually. In 2020, the themes will cover how to combine bioeconomy with:
• data collection, measurements and sensors,
• data transfer and processing and
• data analysis.
