Window for the bioeconomy is now open. There is world- wide demand for the solutions that can meet mankind’s great challenges, such as climate change and resource scarcity. These major challenges create demand – and perhaps even greater need and vision – that can be met by the bio-driven economy.


Koli Forum is a platform for global leaders to identify, analyse and disseminate policy and leadership strategies that make the most of natural resources and innovation capacity. The aim is to turn current challenges into growth opportunities in the field of the bioeconomy.



”International cooperation, exchange of concepts, views and experiences and - last but not least - learning from each other is of utmost importance. I learned a lot already at the first day of the Koli Forum. Intercultural, multidisciplinary and systemic approaches are essential. The global participation at the Koli Forum 2015 will help to achieve the goals towards a better world within its physical limits.”
Dr. Xaver Edelmann, President World Resources Forum
