Maker Faire Rome is the European edition of Maker Faire. Maker Faire Rome combines science, science fiction, technology, entertainment and business to create something totally new. It’s an event created to cater to curious participants of all ages, wishing to experience first-hand the makers’ inventions. Inventions that are the result of a desire to solve everyday problems, whether big or small. Maker Faire Rome is an event designed to turn the spotlight on hundreds of projects from around the world that are able to catapult visitors into the future. In the context of Maker Faire Rome BIOVOICES, together with BIOWAYS, BIOBRIDGES and STAR-ProBio projects, funded by the European Commission, is organising the BIOECONOMY Village aims to raise awareness, improve knowledge on products of renewable origin and promote the applications and benefits of Bioeconomy, the circular economy and sustainability, fostering dialogue, confrontation and sharing among the general public and representatives of universities, research centers, projects, companies, associations and start-ups. What is bioeconomy? What are bio-based products? Is it possible to make more sustainable choices for the environment and for our health? Through the display of products, examples, thematic workshops and practical demonstrations, visitors are shown, in a clear and engaging way, how the bioeconomy is increasingly part of our daily lives and how conscious consumer choices can have a positive impact on the environment, society and the economy. The objective of the BIOECONOMY Village is also to strengthen the dialogue between the subjects that make sustainable development and bioeconomy a concrete commitment, consolidating existing collaborations and involving new actors in the realization of the initiative. There is even an interactive games area where you can and learn all about the bioeconomy at the same time! This area will be divided into: Information area and EC projects. In this area, several projects funded by the European Commission will provide information on the circular bioeconomy and will involve the public in various awareness activities and will gather the opinions, suggestions and ideas of the public on the theme of the pavilion. (BiOWAYS, BIOVOICES, STAR Pro-BIO, BIOVOICES) Educational area, videos and videogames. In this area associations, journalists or scientific advisors will organize interactive activities to inform the public, videos will be screened in a continuous cycle and there will be some gaming stations to discover the circular bioeconomy playing.

The BIOVOICES Focus Group constitutes a community of (external to the project’s consortium) experts in the bioeconomy field acting as a “consultation body” that will: • Validate and improve the identified barriers and opportunities for the development of bio-based value chains and the mapping of bio-based products (applications) based on stakeholders' interests and expected benefits, that has been conducted by the consortium to set the contextual framework of the BIOVOICES MML activities; • Test and validate the BIOVOICES MML approach, before applying it in national, regional and European events; and • Provide best practices, lessons learnt, knowledge and advice related to the uptake of bio-based products and the evolvement of bioeconomy.

In the context of Forum CompraVerde-BuyGreen, the most important Italian and European event for public and private policies, projects and initiatives, dedicated to green and sustainable procurement, BIOVOICES organised a Mobilization and Mutual Learning (MML) Workshop “The role of Green Public procurement in boosting Bioeconomy: challenges, opportunities and barriers to overcome”. The European Bioeconomy Strategy Revision 2018, which will be released in October 2018, identifies the bio-based products in public procurement as one of the main element to boost the sustainable development. Nevertheless, recommendations for the development of commonly accepted sustainability criteria, labels, and certification schemes for bio-based products should be addressed to facilitate public procurement. On 12 April 2016, the Public Procurement Working Group of the European Commission’s Expert Group for bio-based products published 15 recommendations for an increased uptake of bio-based products in public procurement programs. The 15 recommendations include promotional campaigns targeting specific materials, regions and sectors, the roll-out of standards and labels, benchmarking and goal setting, but also manifesto definition, targeted outreach and general communication, technical support to procurers, as well as intervention on legislation if and where possible. Building on the INNPROBIO project experiences in facilitating green public procurement of bio-based products, the mutual learning BIOVOICES workshop aims at mobilising the most relevant quadruplehelix stakeholders to identify challenges, opportunities and barriers to boost bio-based economy in Europe. The invitation is addressed to professionals with in depth knowledge of the topic, staff working in public offices and public procurement, as well as to businesses and users with interest in the bioeconomy and green public procurement. At the end of the workshop, participants will receive a certificate of attendance and, with their authorisation, will be mentioned in the BIOVOICES Recommendations’ Report to the European Commission. The workshop will be in English. For registration: https://www.biovoices-platform.eu/registeredarea/labs/viewLab/874
