The 2020/2021 Year of Science: Bioeconomy


How can the growing world population be provided with high-quality food? How can the impact of human life on the Earth’s climate be minimized? How can raw materials and energy be sustainably supplied? One answer to these challenges is to develop a bioeconomy – a way of doing business that is based on the use of biological resources and oriented toward natural material cycles. As part of the current Year of Science, experts from the Bioeconomy Science Center (BioSC) NRW will present selected topics relating to the bioeconomy and engage in a discussion them with the audience.
