Deloitte, Empirica and Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini (FGB) are conducting a study together with the European Commission DG for Research & Innovation (DG RTD) with the aim to contribute to the development of educational and training content, methods, tools and structures to achieve a mainstreaming of bioeconomy into education and training.
On April 26, they organised a participatory workshop on “Promoting Education, training and skills across the EU bioeconomy” and two of the BIObec partners, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU) and FVA New Media Research, joined it.
The workshop included presentations, a panel discussion, and breakout sessions to allow a highly interactive day. In this sense, the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU) participated as a speaker in the panel discussion on “Preparing the workforce for the future bioeconomy” and FVA New Media Research introduced the role of EuBioNet in facilitating mutual learning and collaboration among the bioeconomy education community.
One of the points addressed during the workshop was that multidimensional thinking is important to understand what the challenges and barriers in the different bioeconomy sectors are and research in the context of the BIObec project was showcased, highlighting that the figure of systemic thinking is crucial and necessary.
