  • ROBIN's 2nd Project Meeting in Seville, Spain

    On the 14th of March 2023, ROBIN’s partners met in Seville, Spain for the 2nd project meeting. The event was hosted by project partners The Technological Corporation of Andalusia (CTA) and Junta de Andalucía at the Agricultural Ministry of Junta de Andalucía. This meeting offered partners the opportunity to review the project’s progress to date.

    The project’s team had the chance to virtually meet the Advisory Board who outlined their skills and expertise that will contribute to the success of ROBIN. Next, the task leaders presented their work so far which led to discussions about the unique insights gained from the research carried out. Partners from regional authorities then presented on their regions and the meeting concluded with looking forward to the next phase of ROBIN and its execution.

    CTA leads the next group of activities, where novel circular bioeconomy governance models will be co-created and insights from mutual learning events will be collected. These co-creation workshops will take place over the coming months.

    The ROBIN project offers a unique collaboration between leading bioeconomy research institutes and regional authorities to empower Europe’s regions to adapt their governance models and structures.

  • ROBIN Southern Region Co-creation Workshop in MTU, Cork

    The Southern Region Co-creation Workshop took place on May 10th in Munster Technological University (MTU), Cork. The event was hosted by the project’s Irish Partners - MTU and the Southern Regional Assembly and attending the workshop were 11 bioeconomy experts from academia, government, industry and civil society, some of whom are already stakeholders within the project.


    After introducing the project and giving a brief overview of the bioeconomy in the region, our experts completed a SWOT analysis and helped us identify opportunities and barriers of the bioeconomy of the Southern Region.


    This led into the main aim of our workshop where we worked on completing the Circular Bioeconomy Governance Model Canvas by diagnosing the bioeconomy of the region. Our attendees provided their opinions and ideas while working through the Canvas, as well as providing valuable feedback on the tool’s development.


    The co-creation workshop helped to identify key insights that will provide content for ROBIN’s next step- The ROBIN toolbox development. This online toolbox will include valuable knowledge on how to deploy regional bioeconomy governance models.
