IGLO Open: “Bioeconomy as the next wave of the European economy”


The Turkish Research and Business Organisations (TuR&Bo) is an international non-profit association (a.i.s.b.l.) that was set up in Brussels in 2004 by four prominent public and private sector Turkish institutions that represent the research & innovation domains and the entire business communities of Turkey: TOBB, TÜBİTAK, KOSGEB and TESK.

IGLO is an informal association of Brussels-based non-profit R&D Liaison Offices. IGLO Open meetings involve relevant policy speakers, e.g. from the European Union institutions, who share their insights on the future developments in the area of Research and Innovation.

TuR&Bo is a member of IGLO and on 5 February 2019 we are hosting an IGLO Open meeting dedicated to bioeconomy.
