Predevelopment Stabilisation 2050 Sustainable bio-economy Acceleration Take-off current situation 2000 2014 time Phase of transition bio-economy 7. Dynamics of transition bio-economy Macro-level - abundance of unconvential fossils + geo-political conflicts + climate change - financial-economic crisis Meso-level - global climate treaty + WBC Sustainable Development. - EU laws & regulation - national laws & regulation Micro-level + pilots en projects + technological expertise + entrepreneurs - local laws & regulation 8. Bio-Economy: the Dutch Approach 9. big harbours chemical industry agriculture & agro-industry transport and logistics energy production knowledge & innovation Netherlands well positioned 10. ideal infrastructure but no biomass 11. vision & ambition network approach strategy & action facilitating government The Dutch Transition Approach 12. - in 2050 is Netherlands leading in bio-economy - in 2040 40% green resources - in 2030 work 1:3 beta-students in bio-economy Vision & Ambition 13. bring diverse parties together vested & emerging interests strive for excellence and ambition co-creation with partners Network Approach 14.
