Who are we?
BIOECONOMY GRS 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 circular bioeconomy covering the whole biomass value chain. BIOECONOMY GRS's main focus will be on Sweden, but in Nordic and global contexts.
BIOECONOMY GRS is financed by FORMAS, with cofunding from and collaboration with Region Skåne, Medicon village, Malmö stad, Lantmännen, Bona, Perstorp and World bioenergy association.
