Bioeconomy Impact 2018 - The Bioeconomy Driving Smart & Sustainable Cities

06 February 2018 — 07 February 2018 Teagasc

Registration is now open to attend the CommBeBiz Bioeconomy Impact Conference on Smart and Sustainable Cities

The Bioeconomy Impact 2018 Conference which takes place in Budapest, a city at the forefront of developing and delivering smart and sustainable urban solutions, will bring together Europe’s most analytical minds to discuss and connect on the important topics of the Bioeconomy and Smart Cities. 

Attendees at Bioeconomy Impact 2018 will hear from companies, community leaders and policy makers, all playing their part in driving sustainable innovation across Europe.

The mission of CommBeBiz is to provide opportunities for European Bioeconomy researchers for skills training, networking and access to experts.  This free to attend conference will provide all these opportunities and is open to Bioeconomy researchers, agencies, start-ups, entrepreneurs and knowledge brokers.

Rhonda Smith, Project Co-ordinator says; “As our world becomes increasingly urbanised and initiatives are being sought to deliver better management of the planet’s diminishing resources, what better way to drive this agenda forward than to hear from the experts and engineers creating novel solutions.”

One of those experts will be Rego Lanszki, President of the Municipality of Budapest’s 2nd District Committee for property development and President of Smart Solution Cluster.

Attendees will have the opportunity to pitch and present their projects as well as take part in CommBeBiz ‘Top Tips’ workshops aimed at supporting better collaboration and connection on the research  journey towards innovation.

There is still a chance to apply for a bursary to attend the final CommBeBiz Academy event on the 6th February, providing access to a range of experts, as well as attending the conference.  Full details about how to apply for a bursary, plus how to register for this free event are all available on our website at

Rhonda Smith continues: “Bioeconomy Impact 2018 is the final meeting of the CommBeBiz project. This three-year European funded project set out to explore methods by which the commercial and innovation world can better support the Bioeconomy researcher. During the project, we have gained much experience that helps us to bring together the capabilities and knowledge to speed up innovation.  The CommBeBiz team looks forward to welcoming you to Budapest.”
