Have you been hearing a lot about the bio-economy, but are unclear about what that means? Doing research related to bio-refinery, but not sure how to communicate it? The BFFM 2015 (Biorefinery for Food, Fuels, and Materials) Young Scientists Team has organized a workshop for you!
Young Scientist Workshop:
Your Future in the Bio-based Economy
On June 17th in Montpellier, France, within the context of the international congress “Biorefinery for Food, Fuel, and Materials”, this free workshop will be dedicated to early-career scientists—researchers, economists, engineers, and more, from Ph.D.,to postdoctoral levels. This event, chaired by Damien Conaré, member of the Unesco Chair in World Food Systems, will introduce topics related to the bio-based economy and discuss its future. Some highlights include:
- Special guest experts in the bio-based society community:
- An interactive, dynamic, and informative forum to exchange experiences, best practices, and ideas around the question: “How can young scientists transmit and promote their research work in the bio-economy context in order to contribute to the science and innovation agenda of the future?”
- A surprise visit to an exciting site!
This free workshop is limited to 50 people, so register now at http://www.bffm2015-congress.eu/workshop.html if you want to visit Montpellier in mid-June and learn about the bio-based economy!
