The BIObec project aims to develop a method that serves as a framework for Bio-Based Education Centres (BBECs). These centres address, with a multi-level view, the present and future needs of industry and of the surrounding ecosystem in each region. A BBEC is an educational centre that gives training to many different profiles having in mind the present and future challenges detected by the bio-based industries. They have a regional scope, so they can adapt to the reality of the territory where they are located. 

Join us to explore how the BIOBEC Project is reshaping education to drive the growth of Europe’s bioeconomy. Discover successful BBEC implementations and explore opportunities for collaboration and replication across EU regions. The EU funded BIObec project developed plans for six regional bio-based education centres (BBECs). These BBECs address the present and future needs of the industry in each region and provide key links between education, innovation and industry.
