The purposes of this paper are to present the different bioeconomy strategies within European Union (the national member states’ published bioeconomy strategies are presented), the United States, and China, to construct bibliometric networks of the global scientific literature in order to shape a "visual" definition of bioeconomy, to locate in which aspects of economic activity intervenes (with which terms) and to draw conclusions regarding the primary causes of its appearance, its present form and its future perspectives. Our pursuit is not just to present a "static" bioeconomy, but using the means of bibliometric analysis, to reach more critical conclusions.
Key words: bioeconomy, circular bioeconomy, VOSviewer, SocNetV.
