Abstract

The overall goal of the BioSTEP project is to develop a set of recommendations for the participatory design of bioeconomy strategies at different levels. This paper is the first deliverable under WP3 and focuses on two national case studies. WP3 aims: - To identify and collate information on national and regional strategies relating to the bioeconomy, which are examples of good practice in terms of the participation of a broad range of stakeholders and citizens in the design, implementation and monitoring/review of the strategies, - To analyse these strategies and the mechanisms used to ensure the participation of stakeholders and citizens, and to synthesise findings, with a view to drawing out insights on participative ways of governing the bioeconomy, and - To make this knowledge available to a wider audience, with a view to raising awareness and encouraging dialogue. This report documents the first steps towards addressing these aims, which involve an assessment of how different publics have participated in the development, implementation and review of national policy-led bioeconomy strategies in Finland and in Germany. It also explores the benefits and challenges of different approaches to participation in these policy strategies, and draws
