Main objectives

BIOECONOMY Graduate Research School (GRS) is a transdisciplinary graduate research school at Lund University with an overall aim of developing the competencies necessary for participants 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 circular bioeconomy;
  • lead the way in innovative inter/trans-disciplinary research and education for a sustainable bioeconomy in the international arena.

Who are we?

BIOECONOMY GRS aims to act as a collaborative learning platform at Lund University allowing researchers and PhD 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.
