This policy brief aims to show how the biotech sector, in its waste valorization and bio-blue economy aspects, could thrive in the South-Med region if supported with appropriate policies that are science-informed and empowering to entrepreneurial innovation allowing for a more enabling startup ecosystem.

The brief shows that while global competition may affect the ability of South Mediterranean countries to pursue ambitious biotech industrialisation in highly technical medical fields, agricultural biotech and blue bio-economy entrepreneurship could be easier to scale up; especially with rising global interest in regenerative / low impact water-energy-food nexus solutions and carbon fixation.
