Summary:
One of the objectives of the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is to promote farmers' competitiveness and ensure food security. Despite the existence of the CAP, the incomes of pro-producers in many EU countries, including Slovakia, are not at the level of incomes in other sectors of the national economy. The bio-based economy, based on natural materials and resources, is gaining ever more support in Europe and creates new opportunities for increasing incomes of primary agricultural producers, strengthening their competitiveness and reducing production surpluses. Currently, the vast majority of bio-refineries use first- and second-generation technologies to produce biofuels or chemicals from corn, wheat, sugar beet, sugar cane, micro-organisms from plant and animal waste. The production of biofuels, biochemistry, biopharmacy from agricultural biomass in different EU countries has different levels and since bioeconomics needs productive farmers, the aim of the dissertation thesis will be to research the economy based on biological raw materials and its impact on diversification of farm incomes in selected EU countries.
