The conference «Biotown 2016» on september 22nd was very well received, and around 120 people joined us at Hamar Kulturhus.
The key note speaker, Sigrun Elsa Smaradottir from Matis, Iceland, gave a very interesting lecture on increased value creation, focusing on the blue bioeconomy. We also learned about many great examples of possibilities and products from Norway and Innlandet.
The objective of Biotown this year was to have a discussion regarding the possibilities that follow a joint effort in bioeconomy – and this is what we got! Hedmark fylkeskommune, Innovasjon Norge and the industry all agreed that we need to work together for Innlandet to take a leading role in the «new» bioeconomy.
Thank you for joining us at Biotown 2016!
