Catalonia, an autonomous community located in northeastern Spain, has a population of 7.7 million, one of the most populous regions in the country. With over 60% of Catalonia’s land covered by forests, the region can leverage its abundant natural resources to develop a sustainable bioeconomy.

Additionally, Catalonia is a hub of high-tech manufacturing, research, industry, agricultural production, and fisheries, making it an ideal location for deploying innovative bioeconomy solutions. 

Overall, Catalonia’s unique demographic and geographic characteristics and commitment to sustainable development through its bioeconomy strategy position the region to become a leader in bioeconomy innovation and deployment in Europe.
