Welcome to STRIVE
STRIVE is a research project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. It aims at improving the knowledge base for the design of sustainable bioeconomy policies and regulatory frameworks at national and international level.
The project focuses on the sustainability implications of transnational biomass trade, technological innovation, and innovation transfer in selected bioeconomy sectors with an emphasis on major biomass and knowledge producing countries and regions. Impacts of bio-based transformations will be evaluated against relevant sustainability dimensions, such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) on poverty eradication (1), food security (2), reduced inequality (10), responsible consumption (12), climate action (13), and terrestrial ecosystems (15).
We have adopted an interdisciplinary research approach integrating economics with natural and political science and rely on methods such as, economic modelling, statistical and econometric analysis, life-cycle assessment, technology & innovation management, and qualitative as well as quantitative case studies.
