Raising awareness amongst students about the circular bioeconomy

As events are being reshaped in digital formats worldwide given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, BE-Rural partners also adapt their communication by going online. Lately, Dr Elsa Joāo, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, and partner on the BE-Rural project, responsible for the creation of education materials for schools, colleges and universities, among others, did a Zoom talk on “Key principles of the circular economy and how it relates to the bioeconomy”, at an online conference “Bioeconomy: for a sustainable future” organised by the Biochemistry Students´ Association of Coimbra Academic Association (NEBIOQ/AAC), in partnership with Académica Start UC, a programme of  awareness-raising and education for innovation and entrepreneurship carried out by the University of Coimbra (UC) and the Coimbra Academic Association (AAC), Portugal.
