Businesses, research organisations, and universities will participate in the cooperative educational activities of the two BioEnergyTrain master programmes in bioeconomy, and define the skills needed by graduates to enter the bioenergy job market.
National and international companies, research organisations, and higher education institutions (HEIs) will join efforts at the BioEnergyTrain (BET) Buying-In event, to participate in the teaching and training materials that will help students to face the challenges of the growing bioenergy sector. Actors will have the chance to get involved in the cooperative educational activities included in the two new European master programmes launched by the BET consortium this autumn: Biorefinery Engineering, at the Graz University of Technology, in Austria, and Bioresource Value Chain Management, at the University of Twente, in the Netherlands.
The event will open with introduction of both masters and follows with the presentation of the course materials and e-learning platform developed by the BET consortium for both curricula. Furthermore, the consortium will run three parallel sessions, each focused on the needs of businesses, research organisations, and HEIs, in order to show them the benefits of their participations in alternative learning formats, such as student camps, pilot plant lab courses, and international summer schools included in both master programmes. The involvement of stakeholders will contribute to define the skills needed by graduates who will enter the bioenergy job market.
The event “Advancing Partnership Between Industry and University in Bioeconomy: Training the Experts of Tomorrow” is taking place on 14 September 2017 at the Graz University of Technology, in Austria. There is no conference fee and registration is open until 8 September.
