Strong Bioeconomy will help Europe to live within its limits. The Bioeconomy is therefore not a niche area – it is about growth and job.
European Commission, “Innovating for Sustainable Growth: A Bioeconomy for Europe” February 13, 2012
With such premises the European Commission identified biotechnologies among the Key Enabling Technologies (KET) able to contribute, as an added value, to the relaunch of several sectors of the traditional industry and to the management of many challenges that our society faces in numerous fields, like health, agriculture, energy and environment.
In the midst of the semester of Italian Presidency of the European Union, this represents a moment, at institutional level, to define a strategy allowing to look at biotechnologies, in our Country, as an instrument of growth and competitiveness and a vehicle for an incomparable qualified and juvenile occupational development.
