FIRST2RUN at the Bioeconomy Village – Maker Faire

04 December 2017

From 1st to 3rd of December 2017 FIRST2RUN was among the protagonist of the Bioeconomy Village ‐ Maker Faire in Rome. Promoted by the European research projects BIOWAYS and STAR‐ProBio (funded by the European Commission and BBI‐JU programme), the BIOECONOMY VILLAGE aims to raise public awareness, improve knowledge of bio‐based products, and promote the benefits of the bioeconomy.

Several bio‐based products and the way they are used in everyday life were showcased in a practical and engaging way through samples, thematic workshops and demonstrations.


The event was an opportunity to present how FIRST2RUNproject intends to support European bioeconomy through the implementation of a highly innovative value chain but also to establish links with other relevant European projects to promote exchange of knowledge and synergies about bio‐based products.
