Ladies and gentlemen,
close to the end of 2018, we look back to several successful events in the last months. Following an international BioSC workshop on nutrient recycling with algae, a BioSC Spotlight “Plant Performance” and the NRW-wide PhD Day “Future bioeconomy”, the International BioSC Symposium was held for the third time in November in Bonn. BioSC representatives participated in a German-Russian Seminar “Bioeconomy and global challenges” in Moscow and St. Petersburg. At RWTH Aachen University, a lecture on bioeconomy is taking place during the 2018/19 winter semester with BioSC as a co-organizer.
We introduce the new Executive Board of the BioSC, a new Core Group and a new colleague in the Office. Moreover we present the Department of Ecosystem Analysis at the Institute for Environmental Research at RWTH Aachen University which has several points of contact to bioeconomy research.
The Office wishes all members, friends and partners of BioSC a happy Christmas and a good start into 2019.
