The EU-funded BIObec project leverages education in order to unlock the EU bioeconomy’s full potential.
About the project
The BIObec project aims to build bridges between the bio-based industry and the education system by interlinking universities, innovation labs, and R&D centres with industrial actors and regions. In order to achieve this, the project proposes a holistic framework that merges the traditional idea of an education centre, with that of a knowledge hub.
BIObec will establish multi-level Bio-Based Education Centres (BBECs) to act as knowledge hubs bridging the gaps between academic institutions, students, innovation entities and policy makers. Likewise, the BBECs will be flexible enough to answer the actual and future needs of the industry and surrounding ecosystem at local, regional and national levels.
Looking for Young Bioeconomy Entrepreneurs
The BIObec project in collaboration with the EU-funded project Transition2Bio, the European Bioeconomy Network, and the Circular Bio-based Europe Joint Undertaking (CBE JU), are producing a series of short video interviews in order to promote the excellence of European young entrepreneurs involved in the Sustainable and Circular Bioeconomy. The aim of this initiative is to inspire, inform and attract young generations towards educational and working careers in the bioeconomy.
If you are a young sustainable entrepreneur under 35 interested in this initiative or know someone who would like to take part in it, contact the BIObec project at firstname.lastname@example.org and make your voice heard!
