Bioeconomy is a growing international field that combines traditional fields in a new way. The aim in bioeconomy is to reduce our dependency on fossil natural resources and to prevent biodiversity loss. The transition towards bioeconomy requires the ability to create new solutions by combining existing processes, raw materials and side streams. Bioeconomy is growing rapidly, and in order to develop it, we need experts and entrepreneurs who are capable of taking advantage of the opportunities to use, refine and export biomass to create new business.
