Eastern Norway aims to take a national position as a bioeconomy region. Eastern Norway Research Institute will lead the secretariat for the strategy work on this.

‘Bioeconomy- strategy and measures for Eastern Norway’ is a collaboration between the Hedmark and Oppland County Councils.

– The aim is to strengthen the biobased sector and contribute to growth in the region’s renewable, green resources, says Tor Arnesen. This will lead to increased competitiveness and economic growth in the area and contributes to a green shift in the national economy.

The project will be completed with the implementation of the action plan at the end of 2016.
