Symobio is a research project within the concept “Bioeconomy as Societal Change” of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The project develops scientific basics for a systemic monitoring and modelling of the German bioeconomy with respect to sustainability aspects on a national and international level.

The development of the monitoring system goes in line with the goals of the agenda 2030 and is framed by a bioeconomy systems analysis approach. To this end, eight research institutions in Germany collaborate in this project.

The project is coordinated by the Center for Environmental Systems Research (CESR) of Kassel University and runs from March 2017 to August 2021.
