Results and legacy of the BIObec project

The main objective of the event is to present the results of the BIObec project, following the path from the detection of regional bioeconomy needs to the design of answers in the form of Bioeconomy education centres adapted to the local innovation ecosystem. The event will include conceptual and methodological aspects, operational solutions, lessons learned and further gaps in research and education for the Bioeconomy. It will also be an opportunity to discuss potential future initiatives beyond the projects, including collaboration, replication and implementation of the designed centres.
