Open-Bio investigates how markets can be opened for bio-based products through standardization, labelling and procurement. Part of the Open-Bio project deals with the question of whether the EU Ecolabel can be extended to explicitly cover bio-based products, and if yes, how. The objective was to assess the suitability of ecolabel criteria for bio-based products or, in other words, to find out whether the existing criteria of ecolabels can be applied to bio-based products, whether there are conflicts of harmonization and whether additional criteria can or should to be added in order to adequately label bio-based products.This workshop is part of the Open-Bio project, funded by the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development. Participation is free of charge and limited to 40 participants.
