we are happy to inform you about the publication of our new "research trends" paper on
bioeconomy politics and governance. It briefly discusses recent relevant literature delivering to a political
science perspective on bioeconomy and identifies 4 main research strands.
Michael Böcher, Annette Elisabeth Töller, Daniela Perbandt, Katrin Beer, Thomas Vogelpohl,
Research trends: Bioeconomy politics and governance, Forest Policy and Economics,
Volume 118, 2020, 102219.
We think that the paper could be useful to serve as starting point for further research from
a specific public policy / political science perspective on bioeconomy.
The paper is one result of the three year project
"Political processes of bioeconomy between economy and ecology"
a cooperation between FernUniversität in Hagen, Germany and
Otto-von-Guericke-University, Magdeburg, Germany.
It has been funded by the German Federal Ministry of Research and Education (BMBF).
You can download the full paper by clicking on this link before August 01, 2020.
No sign up, registration or fees are required.
