The Association for European Life Science Universities and the Community of Practice for Bioeconomy Education held a webinar: Status and Future of Bioeconomy Education – Learning from EU projects on November 4 and 5.
During the session, several EU-funded projects – BIObec among them – that focus on bioeconomy education presented their work and outcomes, sharing their experience and the impact they expect to have on enhancing education for the sustainable circular bioeconomy.
In addition to the already held webinar, there will be a follow-up session on 19 November, with the goal to discuss how the projects have reached different target groups and to identify the needs for new developments in education.

The Community of Practice for Bioeconomy Education
The goal of the ICA CoP Bio-Edu is to enhance the quality, offer and diversity of education for the sustainable circular Bioeconomy in Europe, by bringing educational actors in contact with each other, both virtually and face to face. Together, they form a professional network to:
• Share experiences and good practices among educational actors coming from different educational sectors and regional perspectives.
• Consult with industry and stakeholders about skills demands and educational outcomes.
• Develop educational projects to create and evaluate new educational materials, strategies and innovative training concepts.
