RUBIZMO – Replicable business models for modern rural economies – Virtual Library

RUBIZMO – Replicable business models for modern rural economies – Virtual Library

RUBIZMO will identify innovative business models with a significant potential to support modernisation and sustainable growth in rural economies, and relevant to the food sector, bio-based value chains and ecosystem services. Business models with the potential to contribute to the modernisation and sustainable growth of rural economies will be selected, packaged and classified according to their nature, comprising technologies, services, business support structures, financing mechanisms, etc.

The work in RUBIZMO will result in the series of practical, user-oriented tools.

The Virtual Library gathers a collection of inspiring rural business ideas from across Europe, to inspire and inform potential entrepreneurs about business opportunities. Each business idea is presented to better understand its background and success factors and to gather some tips from business owners to replicate success. Sectors covered present promising opportunities for rural economies: food, bio-based value chains, and ecosystem services.

InnProBio Handbook on the public procurement of bio-based products and services (Dutch version)

InnProBio Handbook on the public procurement of bio-based products and services (Dutch version)

Public procurement plays a vital role in Europe’s economic performance. EU public spending on purchasing supplies, works and services amounts to nearly 19% of the EU’s gross domestic product. This tremendous power from the European public sector can be used as a market pull mechanism to help boost the market of bio-based products and their associated services.

By harnessing the potential of public procurement to foster innovation, InnProBio worked with the public sector to develop tools for purchasers, facilitate the creation of buyers groups, and increase awareness and incentives in order to lower the barriers to purchasing innovative bio-based products and services. Thus leading to the opening of new markets of bio-based products in Europe.

InnProBio outcomes include tools & resources, including factsheets, state-of-the-art reports, a product database, guidance materials, and recommendations on the public procurement of bio-based products and services. 

A shortened version of the information presented online is presented in the Handbook on the Public Procurement of Bio-Based Products and Services. The handbook can be used independently by procurement practitioners and is available in several languages (English, German, Polish and Dutch).

BioSTEP Guidelines for Practioners – Stakeholder and Citizen Participation in Bioeconomy Strategies.

BioSTEP Guidelines for Practioners – Stakeholder and Citizen Participation in Bioeconomy Strategies.

The bioeconomy holds potential solutions to important challenges of the future. The social, economic and environmental impacts associated with its products and processes, however, will require extensive dialogue processes on the future development of the bioeconomy.

BioSTEP aimed to promote a public dialogue on the goals of the Bioeconomy, to increase overall awareness and understanding, as well as consequences and benefits. It applied a three-tier approach to reach all relevant actors in the bioeconomy domain by using tailored communication tools, such as workshops, conferences, exhibitions and public debates on the bioeconomy.

The experience gained and lessons learned from BioSTEP are captured in a series of publications covering research recommendations, policy advice and practioners’ guidelines. Includes are the BioSTEP Guidelines for Practioners – Stakeholder and Citizen Participation in Bioeconomy Strategies.

SUCCESS STORY: Sălacea Project-the First Step in the ZERO WASTE Certification Process

It is an example of Good Practices identified in the Interreg Europe project BIOREGIO. A pilot project by which the local public administration together with Zero Waste Romania, the local waste collector, and the waste treatment plant, compost and landfill operator aim to reduce as much as possible the amount of waste generated by the population (about 3,000 inhabitants; 1,000 households) and to use recyclable and biodegradable waste.
