The project will develop an MSc curriculum for Biorefinery Engineers and Bioresource Value Chain Managers. The first curriculum will be implemented in a pilot centred at Graz University of Technology while the second curriculum will be implemented at University of Twente. The two curricula will build on existing disciplinary education dealing with utilising bioresources and will combine existing engineering disciplines necessary to develop, design, and operate industrial systems utilising bioresources.
All new material developed in the framework of the project will be made available to stakeholders in education and industry to integrate the programme or parts of it in their own educational context.
Master in Biorefinery Engineer
The MSc Curriculum Biorefinery Engineer will provide education for designing, operating and innovating biorefineries as a necessary basis for the implementation of a European lowcarbon energy system.
Master in Bioresource Value Chain
The MSc Curriculum Bioresource Value Chain Manager will provide the education to manage, optimise and innovate bioresource supply chains in regional contexts and to optimize resource utilization within the framework of the emerging bioeconomy and objectives of the SET-Plan.
