20 April 2021: 2020 was a busy year for the Biofuture Platform, a multi-stakeholder initiative facilitated by the International Energy Agency (IEA) and designed to take action on climate change by promoting international coordination on the sustainable low-carbon bioeconomy. Among others, we have seen the launch and global response to its Five Principles for Post-COVID Bioeconomy Recovery and Acceleration, the official launch of a new Biofuture Platform Initiative  at the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) and the first virtual segment of the Biofuture Summit II. 2021, is promising to be as busy as well, starting with the final segment of its Summit,  fto be held from May 24th to May 26th, as part of the BBEST 2020-21/BIOFUTURE SUMMIT II Virtual Conference.
 
As a follow-up to its landmark first edition in 2017 and the latest December virtual segment, the Biofuture Summit II will convene countries, entrepreneurs, and scientists around the world who are already trying policies, practices, and technologies to achieve this goal, and try to converge on what works and what doesn’t, and in which context; what should be replicated, and what should be avoided.
Pursuant to the multi-stakeholder nature of the Platform, the second Biofuture Platform Policy Conference will be held in conjunction with the fourth edition of the Brazilian Bioenergy Science and Technology Conference (BBEST 2020/2021), which will be focused on Innovation, presenting the advances of the FAPESP BIOEN Program. 
The complete agenda of the event, with over 30 political and technical sessions, will include highlights on (1) biomass, agronomy, biotechnology; (2) technologies for biofuel production; (3) biorefineries; (4) aviation engines and applications; (5) sustainability; (6) policy aspects related to the challenges of scaling up the bioeconomy sector; and (7) consolidation of the ongoing work of the Biofuture Platform as a premier international forum for advancing the sustainable low carbon bioeconomy debate.
