About the project

The Bioenergy Dialogue took place between September 2012 and December 2013 and was carried out by BBSRC with co-funding and support from Sciencewise. The data analysis was conducted by Ipsos MORI and the project was evaluated by Collingwood Environmental Planning (CEP).




A report of the dialogue was published on 23 December 2013 and can be found below.

The evaluators, Collingwood Environmental Planning, have been involved with the project from the outset and their interim report on the governance of the dialogue is published below. It should be noted that the publication of this report was delayed until after completion of the dialogue and well after the completion of the practical aspects of the dialogue. It has therefore not been possible for BBSRC to take account, during this project, of the recommendations made in the report. A final evaluation report, which evaluates the process of the dialogue, is also published below. 

These reports will be discussed by the BBSRC Sustainable Bioenergy Outreach Group, the Bioscience for Society Strategy Panel and the Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy Strategy Advisory Panel and used to inform the work of those groups. A BBSRC response to the findings will be published in due course.
