Global Biopolymer Network launches Stakeholder Discussions


CE PoliMaT, along with partners of the Global Biopolymer Network (GBN), launched the Stakeholder Discussions in the spring of 2013.  Discussions held in the US, Africa and Europe provide an opportunity for dialogue with international stakeholders interested in biopolymers, including policy-makers, industry, academia, multilateral agencies and investors. The goal is to strengthen international science and technology collaboration between countries with a commitment to tackling the global challenges irrespective of size and level of development in the field of biopolymers.

In order to ensure the opportunity for meaningful engagement, a limited number of individuals are invited to actively participate in the discussion. The Science, Technology and Globalization Project organized the first discussion with Boston area biopolymer research community at Harvard’s Kennedy School, Cambridge, USA, on March 29, 2013. The second was held in Bled, Slovenia on April 3, 2013. The third was organized by the Embassy of Slovenia in Vienna, Austria on April 10, 2013. The forth discussion, organized by Kenyan and Slovenian embassies in Washington DC, was held on April 23, 2013.  The results, observations and comments relating to all meetings shall be collected and presented at the Global Biopolymer Network meeting in June 2013 at Harvard University, Kennedy School of Government, and Cambridge, USA, in cooperation with the Science, Technology and Globalization Project.  

Global Biopolymer Network currently includes the Austen BioInnovation Institute (Akron, USA), the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the Science, Technology and Globalization Project at the Kennedy School of Government of Harvard University (Cambridge, USA), Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (Nairobi, Kenya), VDI/VDE - IT (Berlin, Germany), CE PoliMaT (Ljubljana, Slovenia) and the Polymer Competence Center Leoben (Leoben, Austria). This network builds on the strengths of participating institutions and companies with a focused approach to real-world problems that can be addressed through appropriate technological solutions involving advanced materials and biopolymers.
