WEBINAR: Status and Future of Bioeconomy Education - Learning from EU projects
to be held on Friday 19 November from 9.00 -12.00 CET
The Bioeconomy is complex with many enterprises interacting in the circular economy. At all levels of education - from school, vocational education and training (VET), universities and life-long learning - there is a need to develop new instructional constructs or modify existing programmes. This updating will ensure that we address the requirement to deliver our students with the skills to support the change from a fossil fuel economy to the green circular economy of which the sustainable circular bioeconomy is a central part.
Several EU Commission projects focusing on bioeconomy education have been invited to present the outcomes of their projects, or projected outcomes if the project is ongoing, at a series of Webinars held on 4 & 5 November. We asked each coordinator (or partner) of the project to share their experience with us of how the outcomes of their project have, or will, impact on education for the sustainable circular bioeconomy.
The follow up Webinar Workshop on 19 November will discuss how the projects have impacted on the different target groups and identification of the need for new developments in education for the sustainable circular bioeconomy
This will be an opening discussion to the planned Colloquium 2022 – Interdisciplinary Education for the Bioeconomy. The Collqouium proposed dates of Thursday 13 and Friday 14 January have been cancelled because of the current uncertainty of rising threat of COVID in Europe. New dates in the Spring are being sought with the need to find a suitable loaction.
The Webinar and the Colloquium are organised by the ICA Community of Practice for Bioeocnomy Education (ICA CoP Bio-Edu).
