This project aims to stimulate a biobased development in horticulture in Europe. In Bioboost triple helix partners from the Netherlands, Belgium and the United Kingdom work together to stimulate the development of a biobased economy in horticulture.

BioBoost addresses the need for an environmentally friendly and resource efficient economy that focuses on horticulture, by using plant resources in a more sustainable, efficient and integrated way. Although the horticulture industry presents multifaceted societal benefits, the need for transitioning towards a biobased economy has been largely overlooked so far.

There is a lot of potential, but development, testing and uptake of green innovations is slow due to the suboptimal interaction between researchers and SMEs, problematic financing and a lack of cross-disciplinary working methods and effective support strategies.

We are 1 of 9 partners involved in this project, along with Abbey View Produce as an observer partner for the UK/Lea Valley glasshouse industry. The 3-year project is funded by the EU and will finish in December 2019.

Full information on the projects and partners can be found on the BioBoost website.
