BIOPROM project consortium – financied by FP7 – is a Co–ordination and Support Action for bringing together experts who work with and on new concepts for communicating Bio-Economy (economy based on biological and renewable resources) science to the public.
One of these concepts is to address the interests and concerns of citizens through interactive exhibitions in association with science concepts with citizens´debates and participative democracy tools. In many European countries initiatives have been started in setting up science centres, science museums and in organising national or regional events. The BIOPROM project combines different experiences and know-how in order to develop synergetic support measures with the main goal to promote Bio-Economy in the regions. Along these lines, the travelling exhibition Mission Possible – will Bioeconomy save the world? has been established and shown at four different science centres starting from April 2013: Explora (Italy), Welios (Austria), Satrosphere (United Kingdom), Energiakesku (Estony).
Project duration: 01/10/2012 – 31/01/2015
