Our mission is to bring together bioeconomy developers throughout the rural areas of Baltic Sea Region to a joint table to solve global and local challenges with bioeconomy innovations. Our aim is to connect bioeconomy innovation networks to share ideas, find partners and work together to create business opportunities in bioeconomy. Together we build knowledge and raise awareness on sustainable and viable bioeconomy business potential in Baltic Sea Region. To enable international co-operation, we create an open international digital platform called Biobord, which will be tested and scaled up via several pilots together with local small and medium sized enterprises during the RDI2CluB-project.

RDI2CluB-project unites authorities, RDI institutes (Research, Development and Innovation institutes) and business development bodies from five regions to a joint quest for boosting smart and sustainable bioeconomy development in the rural areas of Baltic Sea Region. The five regions of the RDI2CLuB partnership are:

  • Central Finland, Finland
  • Inland, Norway
  • Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship, Poland
  • Vidzeme, Latvia
  • Estonia

Project process

 

RDI2CluB-project started in October 2017 by mapping joint regional challenges and by looking joint solutions to those. Crosscutting issues between regions are sustainable development, multi-level governance and climate change adaption and mitigation. In order to answer these challenges, there is a need for capacity for innovation. Increased capacity will be reach by understanding each regions’ strengths in the field of bioeconomy, by supporting innovation management and the implementing of the innovations, and by increasing transnational co-operation. The understanding of the bioeconomy strengths of each region was succeeded by benchmarking regional bioeconomy profiles and by creating a joint action plan for developing regional innovation capacities. The support of innovation management and the implementing of that will be reach by creating international open virtual bio business hub (Biobord) and by creating an operational model for the innovation management -aspect. Transnational co-operation between regional innovation systems will be reach via pilots that are carried out with local SME’s (small and medium sizes enterprises). These out puts, except the benchmarking of regional bioeconomy profiles, is validated via piloting during the RDI2CluB-project. More of the project from the About the Project -section.

Facebook post by RDI2CluB Good news from #Biobord network! 🥳 RDI2CluB partners Institute for Environmental Solutions and Vidzemes plānošanas reģions with 12 other members have established Latvian Food Bioeconomy Cluster 👏 🇱🇻 The name, goals and agenda of the cluster reflect the current priorities of its members - the move towards more sustainable and environmentally friendly high quality food production, closer cooperation between science and industry for the development of innovative technologies, food products and food processing side streams valorization with higher added value. Latvian Food Bioeconomy Cluster aims to form even closer cross-sectoral and international cooperation links with bioeconomy clusters, consortia, science parks, business incubators and innovation centers both in Latvia and abroad.

Facebook post by RDI2CluB #Bioeconomy goes #business 🍀 This is how RDI2CluB, a flagship of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (Policy Area Bioeconomy) has involved business sector to bioeconomy development: HAVE A SPECIFIC ROLE FOR THE BUSINESS SECTOR IN YOUR PROJECT Business sector has been involved in all stages of RDI2CluB-project, but their role is emphasized in the development of smart bioeconomy clusters/innovation ecosystems and in the joint transnational piloting by being part of the developing process of our Operating Model for Innovation Management and Biobord-platform (3 BU-partners of RDI2CluB). ORGANISE EVENTS FOR BUSINESS SECTOR Business-sector has also acknowledged in other RDI2CluB activities, such as joint workshops and benchmarking trips. FIND THEIR SPECIFIC NEEDS AND DEVELOP A PERSONALIZED SOLUTION One concrete example of including a business sector to bioeconomy innovation is our regional pilot case from Central-Finland where we have piloted and created a mobile application based on the needs of SMEs that combines services and workforce in rural Central Finland. ASK FOR AN INPUT The input of the business sector has been important for producing the main outputs for the project, but also to get information of future possibilities of transnational networking and cross-cluster learning. ANSWER THE QUESTION: IN WHAT WAYS THE BUSINESS SECTOR WILL BENEFIT FROM YOUR PROJECT? As SMEs are also the end users of the outputs, they will benefit from the development support of new business ideas into innovations, created in RDIU2CluB. Biobord platform and the Operating Model will facilitate the commercialization process, transnational networking and provide opportunities to cross-cluster learning.
