UrBIOfuture Workshop

26.6.2019

On June 26th, the UrBIOfuture Project Workshop will take place in Brussels, where Dulce Tienda Martagón and Aleix Barrera will attend as members of the EDO Group, together with about thirty professionals linked to the biobased industry within the framework of the European UrBIOfuture project , co-financed by the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) under the Horizon 2020 program.

The project, led by the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) with the help of the EDO Group, began in May 2019 with the aim of promoting European education in bioeconomics through the creation of university careers, new training programs and activities research in a booming sector.

The conference, organized by CTA, an entity associated with the project, aims to detect the training needs of the European bioeconomy sector. The results extracted from the session will serve to be able to complete the analysis that UrBIOfuture is developing on the gaps between the European educational offer and the needs of companies in the biologically based sector. This educational gap is one of the challenges set by the European Commission for the development of the bioeconomy, since a new profile is required that crosses the boundaries of existing industrial sectors and involves other academic disciplines.

To achieve the goal of the day, participants will be divided into four work tables in which the competencies necessary for the digitalization of the sector will be discussed; soft skills for innovation and entrepreneurship; and basic skills in Circular Bioeconomics, both for technical profiles and for business development, marketing and communication profiles.
