Bioeconomy: Best practices wanted!

German Landscape Conservation Association and partners launch competition and call for participation


The "Bioeconomy model farms" ideas competition is looking for innovative and sustainable ideas for bio-based agriculture and forestry: from the production via the processing to the distribution of food, renewable raw materials and biogenic residues. Our goal is to strengthen value chains in the low mountain regions and to give new perspectives to the people who live and work here.

Individual agricultural and forestry enterprises can participate, but also associations of several enterprises or enterprises with crafts, trade, industry and science are permitted, as long as at least one agricultural or forestry partner is involved. Prize money totalling € 15,000 is up for grabs! Applications are possible until 31st August 2021.
