Each year, the Grand Est region supports numerous innovative projects relating to the bioeconomy which create value and jobs within its territory. The bioeconomy portal is a collaborative tool, highlighting here a certain number of the projects. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to tell us about your project and have it presented on the portal.
