CROSSBEE – CROSS-border Bio-Economy Education

To secure a sustainable development of the bioeconomy within the BIG-Cluster region NRW, Flanders and the Netherlands, the education and training of young experts, not only in individual fields of the bioeconomy, but as a joint undertaking fostering interdisciplinary and entrepreneurship, is needed. CROSSBEE will tackle this challenge under the coordination of CLIB within a three year project funded until 2021.

Within the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) “Biobased Products for a Sustainable (Bio)economy”, students from all over the world will learn about bioeconomy basics and about state of the art biobased product examples.

Within the student competition Global Biobased Businessplan Competition (G-BiB) the student teams will be individually trained in competences and skills relevant for entrepreneurship and the best idea will be awarded.

The project is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research.p>
