AlpBioEco contributes to the BBW ForWerts Program on regional circular bioeconomy

The BBW ForWerts International Summer School on Circular Bioeconomy in Agriculture was scheduled to take place in Annweiler, Pfalz (Germany) from 3-7 August 2020. On 7 August 2020, the programme was centered around the development of bio-based value chains in the Alpine Space and the AlpBioEco project. Unfortunately, due to the spread of the corona virus, the event had to be cancelled. Now, the Summer School was replaced with an intensive two-day workshop that takes place online in December 2020.

The two-day workshop is again centered around regional circular bioeconomy and especially regional bio-based value chains and combines lectures and group work. After four lectures, the international graduate students will be working together in small groups on specific topics. In the workshop, AlpBioEco project partner MCI and lead partner City of Sigmaringen will be sharing insights into the AlpBioEco project and presenting research activities and project results. In addition, also methods and tools will be presented, that shall support the students in their work on the sustainable use of bio-based value chains and eco-innovation.

About the BBW ForWerts Graduate Program: 
The BBW ForWerts Graduate Program is a structured graduate program, focusing on the education of graduate students in the area of bioeconomy. Providing knowledge, skills and competencies required for developing a bioeconomy in an interdisciplinary approach and thus building capacities in future bioeconomy leaders, the BBW ForWerts Program enhances the sustainable use of bio-based materials and coping with global challenges.
