The Bioeconomy in Transition Research Group
The Bioeconomy in Transition Research Group (BiT-RG) at IdEA, Unitelma-Sapienza University of Rome is involved in research concerning the emergence of a circular and bio-based economy relying on the utilisation of renewable resources for the production of novel products for various applications. Core areas of investigation pursued at BiT-RG include:
- economic and sustainability assessments, within the sustainability transition and multi level perspective framework;
- innovation studies and social network analysis;
- policy and regulation analysis through agent-based modelling.
Most of these areas of enquiry aim at supporting decision makers in developing innovation strategies as well as specific strategies to maximise the social impact and minimize the environmental footprint of economic activities and boost the transition to a bio-based economy.
The international workshop on the future of the biorefineries in Europe (Gela, 25-27 May 2017) is just one of the activities developed by the Bioeconomy in Transition Research Group (BiT-RG).
