Cross-Cluster Project “rebana”

Last updated on: 23 Feb, 2022

Transfer potentials of regional approaches of the Bavarian Bioeconomy Strategy

-from regional to Bavaria-wide to (inter-)national –

Digital kick-off meeting: Kulmbach, Straubing, Augsburg & Munich united! The managing directors of the three participating clusters Dr. Simon Reitmeier (Nutrition Cluster), Dr. Patrick Prühs (Chemistry Cluster) and Alfred Mayr (Environment Cluster), together with the project managers.

The diversity of international, but also national and state-wide bioeconomy strategies, with partly different focus topics, is accompanied by a lot of potential. However, this also bears the risk of potential conflicts of objectives on the one hand and increases the challenge of information loss when transferring/upscaling regional approaches to other regions or other disciplines on the other hand. Since the end of 2020, Bavaria has also been pursuing its own bioeconomy strategy.

Objectives & focus activities
This is where the rebana project comes in – it should help to show transfer potentials of regional measures to state-wide to (inter-)national levels across sectors. The planned, (hybrid) event concept is intended to stimulate the exchange between interested multipliers, companies, but also politics and to contribute to the emergence of new, cross-sectoral value creation networks. The following three events across Bavaria are planned for implementation in 2022:

01 | Kulmbach | Thematic focus: “Bioeconomy at regional level”.
02 | Straubing | Main topic: “Bioeconomy – from regional to Bavaria-wide”.

03 | Munich | Thematic focus: “Bioeconomy – from Bavaria-wide to (inter-)national”.

You can find out all the news and details about the respective events in good time on our cluster websites | | and via our LinkedIn-Gruppe.
