BioBoosters

The project BioBoosters brings together bio-based businesses in rural areas to share the know-how in circular production, and trigger green business opportunities.
In the spotlight

Driven by challenges, fueled by innovation, and mentored by experts, the business-driven BioBoosters Hackathon process offers a turnkey service for circular economy transition.

Are you looking to fast-track your company’s circular economy transition? Learn about our call for challenge providers here.

BioBoosters aims to advance the green transition of bioeconomy business by matchmaking competence with needs. By employing a proven business-driven Hackathon process, we can solve challenges that the bioeconomy businesses are facing in transitioning to circular economy business models.

BioBoosters Hackathon is connecting the bioeconomy innovation ecosystems of 9 regions across the Baltic Sea Region. By implementing the open innovation process in inter-regional co-operation, we can facilitate cross-sectoral knowledge transfer as well as connect SMEs, start-ups, and research groups with companies in an international context.

We will run 18 BioBoosters Hackathons together with target groups to validate the innovation process model to be adopted in the key bioeconomy innovation hubs of the participating regions. Furthermore, the model will be transferrable to any innovation hub that is looking to support their regional business networks in green or digital transition.

Our expected impact in numbers:

  • 18 Business-driven Hackathons will validate up to 70 solutions to circular transition challenges
  • 20 international RDI and business co-operations initiated
  • 500 specialist brought together to drive the circular transition of the bioeconomy in the Baltic Sea Region
