You are cordially invited to take part in Dutch-Ukrainian seminar on Business Opportunities in the Biobased Economy that will be held on 24 September 2013 in Kiev, Ukraine (14:00-18:00).

Location: 55, Vladimirskaya str., Kiev, Ukraine. Little Hall on the first floor.

Subject and Goal of the seminar:
Ukraine has a large potential in biomass production. Valorisation of biomass is the basis of the biobased economy. A larger economic output per hectare can be created and a more sustainable approach can be created in this biobased economy. Companies from the Netherlands are interested to develop this further and seek cooperation with Ukrainian companies and organisations.

The basis for the discussion will be the findings from several research projects funded by NL Agency. Results of these projects and business approach will be presented to kick-off the collaboration on the biobased economy with Ukraine.
