About this item

The ‘bio-economy’ is an emerging industrial sector that covers the development of biological products and the use of biological processes in the production of goods, services and energy and has been presented as a win-win solution to the twin challenges of environmental sustainability and economic competitiveness.

This book analyses where innovation happens in the bio-economy, why it happens in those places, and what this means for regional development policies and strategies across a range of countries.

The book’s theoretical approach incorporates diverse geographies (e.g. global, national and regional) and political-economic forces (e.g. discourse, geography, governance and financialization) in order to understand where this new value is produced, where and how that value circulates, and who captures the value produced in the bio-economy.
