Giacomo Marina Rinaldi, PhD student at the University of Bologna and member of the coordinator’s team of the project, showcased the evolution of BIObec and the milestones achieved until now.
The aim of the workshop was to facilitate the exchange of information, best practices, and thoughts in order to obtain new insights on teaching, both learning and spreading the word about bioeconomy. The event involved many inspirational speakers who presented their experiences and projects in bioeconomy education and training.
Genb B CGC Workshop hosted key European actors

“Education and knowledge transfer are key to accelerating the development of the bio-based industry and very relevant to enhance networking and collaboration of all the actors involved.
