The University of Bologna, the University of Eastern Finland and the Horizon 2020 funded project Transition2BIO organise the co-creation workshop ‘Future skills for Bioeconomy’ – Forestry, which aims to identify the future skills and related educational needs in the European bioeconomy. The workshop will take place on 14 June from 15.00 CET/16.00 EET.
The workshop will focus on the Forestry sector and is the second of five co-creation workshops ‘Future skills for Bioeconomy’ focusing on different bioeconomy sectors. These workshops will be organised by Transition2BIO and the University of Bologna, together with external institutions leading each sector.
Providing the needed skills and meeting the educational needs in the European bioeconomy are key challenges for a change in our economy. The European Commission stated in its Updated Bioeconomy Strategy that “The systemic and cross-cutting nature of new and emerging bioeconomy approaches and new value chains will need new education and skills”.
Among its objectives, Transition2BIO will facilitate the identification of the educational and training needs towards the creation of an innovation ecosystem for the bioeconomy. The results of the co-creation workshops will be summarised in a public report and will be used for the delivery of a policy brief aimed to inform policymakers and other stakeholders about the issues and possible solutions to meet the identified skills and educational needs.
‘Future skills for Bioeconomy’ activities will use a bottom-up approach to identify and define the skills for the development of the new workforce in the bioeconomy, involving all the key stakeholders.
The participants will have the opportunity to provide their opinions and points of view on this topic, contributing to the research of the University of Bologna within the H2020 project Transition2BIO.
During the event, the main objectives and outputs of the project will be presented, as well as the results from previous projects and initiatives on bioeconomy education. Inputs from participants will be collected through an online survey and a moderated discussion using an online interactive platform.
