24th EURAS Annual Standardisation Conference
- Standards for a Bio-Based Economy -

13 - 15 June 2019

Rome, Italy

Organised by
The European Academy for Standardisation (EURAS)
Unitelma Sapienza – Bioeconomy in Transition Research Group (BiT-RG)

Governments and companies across Europe and worldwide are confronted 
with depletion of natural resources due to, among others, their 
unsustainable use, increased global competitiveness, increasing 
population, and other challenging environmental and economic issues. 
Promoting the sustainable growth of dynamic bio-economy sectors will 
contribute to an innovative, resource efficient and competitive society 
in transition from a fossil fuel-based society to a bio-based one. 
Bio-based products represent a great opportunity to reconcile 
sustainable long-term growth with environmental protection through the 
prudent use of renewable resources for industrial purposes. However, 
managing those resources in a sustainable manner implies facing major 
challenges. In this context, sustainability schemes and standards play a 
key role in ensuring a clear and evidence-based view of environmental, 
economic and social impacts. Sustainability assessment schemes are 
crucial for the development, implementation and management of effective 
regulatory frameworks incorporating the principle of the circular 
economy, with a focus on end-of-life and after use analysis.

EURAS 2019 solicits papers on the above theme. However, papers on other 
standardisation topics will also be considered. Sample topics include:
