About the BIOECONOMY Graduate Research School
BIOECONOMY is a 1 year graduate research school at Lund University with an overall aim of developing the competencies necessary for participating PhD students to:
- adopt systems approach in order to identify and assess the full range of technological, economic, social and ecological challenges and opportunities in transition to a bioeconomy;
- lead the way in innovative inter/trans-disciplinary research for a sustainable bioeconomy in the international arena.
Collaborative learning platform at Lund University
BIOECONOMY aims to act as a collaborative learning platform at Lund University allowing researchers and Ph.D. students, across faculties/disciplines and research areas, as well as non-academic stakeholders to meet with each other in order to identify, carry out and communicate innovative, analytically advanced and yet problem-oriented research for a sustainable future bioeconomy covering the whole biomass value chain. BIOECONOMY’s main focus will be on Sweden, but in Nordic and global contexts.
Partners at Lund University
Due to the inter/trans- disciplinary structure of the BIOECONOMY, scholars from 3 faculties (Natural Sciences, Engineering and Social Sciences), 4 centres/institutes (CEC, LUCSUS, CIRCLE and IIIEE), and 5 departments (Biology, Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis, Chemical Engineering/Bioetechnolgy, Political Science and Sociology) with various disciplines and research areas (i.e. agriculture, forestry, biology, biotechnology, biorefinery, innovation, transition studies, sustainability science, governance, sociology, systems science) work collaboratively.
