BIOBec

Leveraging education to unlock the EU bioeconomy's full potential.

BIObec

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.
