This White Paper is the result of discussions between the European Technology Platforms (ETPs) that cover different segments
of the European Knowledge-Based-Bioeconomy (KBBE) and a series of open meetings with their array of stakeholders. The
primary focus of this document is to elaborate on common themes and joint priorities across the widely diverse sectors relevant
for the European Bioeconomy. Naturally through the different roles of the sectors and the different stakeholders, each ETP will
put specific emphasis on the common goals while following their own specific objectives. Consequently this White Paper does
not replace, but complements, the Strategic Research Agendas (SRAs) of each individual ETP.

This White Paper is the result of a successful collaboration between the following European Technology Platforms which have
been working together for two years in a project funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)
(Contract KBBE-2008-226526: BECOTEPS – Bio-Economy Technology Platforms). The stakeholders represented in all the ETPs are
industry and academia. In addition, farmers, forest owners, consumers and civil society organisations are represented in the
relevant ETPs.
