Together with the European Commission DG for Research & Innovation (DG RTD), Deloitte, Empirica, and Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini (FGB) conducted a study to support the development of educational and training content, methods, tools, and structures to achieve a mainstreaming of the bioeconomy into education and training.
The BIObec project was part of this study in different ways:
- Two of our partners, the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU) and FVA New Media Research, had the opportunity to participate in a workshop to address topics such as the workforce in the bioeconomy sector or mutual learning among the bioeconomy education community
- BIObec has been part of the literature review carried out to create the final report and has been identified as one of the most relevant projects for data collection purposes. In this sense, results from focus group discussions included in D1.1, Report on European and regional analysis of the needs, opportunities and expectations to bio-based education/training model, have been analysed to identify future skills demanded in the bioeconomy field
You can access the full report to understand how this study is supporting the upgrade of bioeconomy-related training and education to meet future workforce needs for the deployment of a sustainable and circular bioeconomy.
