Bioeconomy Ireland Week is an annual week-long event held each October to highlight and raise awareness of Ireland’s rapidly growing bioeconomy. The celebration is a collaboration of events involving industry, local communities, producers, researchers and students throughout Ireland.

Following the successful Bioeconomy Day 2018 which featured the official launch of BiOrbic (formerly  BEACON), Ireland’s bioeconomy celebration was expanded to  Bioeconomy Ireland Week in 2019

The concept for a dedicated annual bioeconomy celebration was developed by BiOrbic and the week is coordinated as part of the Irish Bioeconomy Network.

Bioeconomy Ireland Week 2020 takes place between 19-23 October.  

We are building an exciting programme  of hands-on workshops, networking events, insightful discussions and interactive activities. We welcome communities, groups, producers, researchers, artists, industry and others to join our programme with  your own activities and events.
