The SCALE-UP project will support regional multi-actor partnerships, consisting of private businesses, governments and policymakers, civil society organisations, and researchers in identifying and scaling-up innovative and sustainable bio-based value chains that build on regional resources.


The sustainability of bio-based innovations is a critical component, which needs to be explored in the attempt to mainstream bio-based solutions in European rural areas. The transition towards sustainable, regenerative, inclusive and fair regional bioeconomies requires a comprehensive, and at the same time, functional framework. This framework should link bio-based solutions to rural development goals and principles of sustainable development, enabling rural communities to identify, compare and implement alternative bio-based development pathways.
