Information on the topic:
The global population is growing, our standard of living is increasing and we are faced with environmental challenges such as anthropogenic climate change, ocean litter, a declining availability of arable land and dwindling fossil resources. This requires us to transform today’s oil based economy towards the sustainable use of renewable resources, that is to say, towards the bioeconomy!

An important task for today’s researchers worldwide is to find innovative technology which allows this transformation.

Watch the recording of our online talk on Bioeconomy, the topic of the Science Year 2020/21 in Germany and learn how you can participate.
