DanuBioValNet Cross-clustering partnership for boosting eco-innovation by developing a joint bio-based value-added network for the Danube Region

Bio-based packaging value chain

Value Chain Mapping Report - Bio-based Packaging

The report’s objective is to provide an overview of the interviews conducted with representatives of the eco-construction industry in the DanuBioValNet region. The report should serve to highlight the tendencies and patterns that emerge from the aggregate information collected through the interviews.


Cluster Mapping Report - Bio-based Packaging

The Bio-based sector is a comparable young and emerging industry. It provide around 1,7 million jobs all over Europe, whereas around 500.000 are located in the Danube Region. The report has shown that the Danube Region is on the way to become European hot spot. As shown in Appendix II, many of the most competitive regions are located in there.


Roadmap Report - Bio-based Packaging

Roadmap is a specialised type of strategic plan that outlines activities that an organisation can undertake over specified timeframes to achieve stated goals and outcomes. This document besides other information summarizes the Bio-based packaging Roadmapping workshop (held in Ljubljana from the 24th to 25th of May, 2018). The primary focus of the workshop discussion was on market and consumer needs in the Danube region. The outcome of the workshop was intended to provide the input for the Joint Bio-based Industry Cluster Policy Strategy, new cluster management services and the identification of feasible pilot actions.


Bio-based Packaging Pilot Action

Workshop “Biopackaging – let´s create future together” was a part of the work package “Pilot action”. Its aim is to match related cluster actors in order to create eco-innovations along the selected value chains and to demonstrate three completed VCs that can be put in practice after the end of the project. The workshop was a cooperation event and was organized on 6 March 2019 in Vienna (Austria) by three partners of the DanuBioValNet project. Business Upper Austria was the host of the event, whereas the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport Slovenia and Anteja ECG (Slovenia) were co-hosts. The goal was to create eco-innovations and project ideas that shall target identified gaps and obstacles of the value chain which will further result in the creation of the bio-based packaging value chain.

Synthesis Report on Bio-based Value Chains Roadmapping

This working paper summarizes information about Bio-based value chains roadmapping in the Danube Region and defines Action Lines for the Danube Bio-Based Strategy.


Country Report Synthesis

Represents the synthesis of the Status quo among the DanuBioValNet partners (PP): Upper Austria, Baden Württemberg, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Romania and Montenegro. It includes Country Reports from 10 PP. The present Synthesis Report provides information about the current state of the art, where the current and future regional hot spots of innovation in bioeconomy are located as well as policies and programmes in place. Based on the 10 PP reports, the Synthesis Report provides input for policy learning and input for suggested next steps in bio-based value chain (VC) and cluster development within DanuBioValNet.
