The embedding art and design in the activities will boost the uptake to strengthen local governance feedback loops and respective governance models, to increase design thinking and co-create formats fortraining, retraining, mentoring and skills development and transfer fostering understanding and engagement in bio-based systems and to co-create communication and awareness campaigns. Engage4BIO framework will be designed in a transferable way, considering regional, natural and cultural differences and will be applicable in different European regions.
