The Government’s bioeconomy policy strenghtens the effort to establish the bioeconomy centre BioSmia

Today, the government presented its national bioeconomy policy, and we are happy to see that Arena Heidner is mentioned as a world leading hub when it comes to animal and plant breeding and fertility. They have also focused on the utilization of biorenewable residues and development of plus products, examplified by the Heidner companies Norilia/Nortura and TINE, and Hedmark University of Applied Science is mentioned as an important national knowledge environment within the bioeconomy. These are all important aspects in the further development of the Heidner Cluster.

Hedmark Kunnskapspark will implement the national strategy in the establishment of BioSmia Bioeconomy Centre – Which will be officially opened in week 7 in 2017.
