German-Dutch Forum on Bioeconomy and Recycling

Meet experts and explore your opportunities

DNHK Rotterdam Frühstuck Wereldmuseum met Burgemeester Aboutaleb

Internationally, Germany is a pioneer in the field bio-economy, recycling and waste management: German governments have been supporting the path to a (circular) bioeconomy with various (funding) programmes since the 1990s.

Smart recycling solutions, more focus on sustainable material efficiency and reducing the dependence on fossil fuels are central to the region’s economic strategy and competitiveness.

During the Forum in Amsterdam leading entrepreneurs and economic affairs officers will provide insight into the opportunities for investors and entrepreneurs in Germany, especially in the region of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in the north-east of the country. During the event, German as well as Dutch speakers will be sharing best practices. In short, a high-quality networking and information event with relevant entrepreneurial stories and surprise-guests!

North-east Germany: An ideal  starting-point from the region Berlin/Hamburg to Germany, Scandinavia and Poland

Mecklenburg Vorpommern stimulates innovative approaches by supporting entrepreneurship, research and promising investment opportunities. Through a close cooperation between business, research and government, MeckPomm succeeds in attracting more and more foreign investors.

The region’s attractive location in relation to important sales markets plays a strong role in this: From this region, northern and eastern Germany, Poland and Scandinavia are "just around the corner", making it a good and affordable base for companies looking to grow in these strong markets. In addition, the availability of qualified staff and physical space to do business is a strong asset.
