LEARNING OUTCOMES AND CONTENT

This seminar aims at presenting orientational knowledge and guidance in the emerging field of sustainable bioeconomy. In addition, students get to know and learn basic skills in analysing and assessing a crucial and complex field of sustainable transformation.
Students will:

  • Gain basic knowledge and understanding of interdisciplinary concepts of a sustainable bioeconomy,
  • Learn about their chances, risks and consequences of these different concepts,
  • Acquire practical skills of collaborative work and applying interactive methods.

In the lecture, students get an introduction into the different concepts and areas of sustainable bioeconomy. We present and analyse:

  • the terminologies and meanings of multidimensional concepts (for example sustainable
    consumption and circular economy)
  • chances, risks such as consequences of innovations and technologies in the field
  • possible future pathways of the bioeconomy development

The in-class lectures are meant to be highly interactive by applying and discussing material, which
will be provided by the online lectures.
The sessions are designed as hands-on sessions, in which students learn interdisciplinary and
systemic thinking in the field of bioeconomy.
