The Hungarian Engage4BIO Hub will focus on bio-based value chains for the efficient utilisation of agricultural and food industry products, by-products and waste. Although it has a strong regional focus, it will implement its activities in other parts of the country as well. The hub is established with the aim of reaching the following goals:
• establish regional bio-based system and transition to a more circular and sustainable bio-based economy;
• active engagement of agricultural and food industry stakeholders;
• creating novel measures and innovative tools in awareness raising and education.
The hub will target their activities towards all actors of the quintiple helix, with special attention to the private sector and the wider public. Ministry of Agriculture and Association of Women in Science have already expressed their interest. The Hungarian Bioeconomy Cluster will also support to reach the aims of the project. The cooperation of the two hub leaders, Bay Zoltan Nonprofit Ltd. for Applied Reseach (BZN) and Moholy-Nagy University for Arts and Design (MOME) results a combination of impact-driven applied / industrial R&D and creative innovation.
