Towards a sustainable bioeconomy
Slide background

Sustainable bioeconomy

The bioeconomy includes all economic sectors of production, processing and use of biological resources for the manufacture of food and feed, bio-based resources and bioenergy. As a knowledge-based bioeconomy, sustainable use of limited resources must be achieved and solutions for societal challenges such as adapting to climate change must be developed through integrated application of knowledge about biological resources and processes.

The Bioeconomy Science Center

The RWTH Aachen, the Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf, the Friedrich Wilhelms University in Bonn and the Jülich Research Center already have outstanding research activities in numerous theme areas of bioeconomy and hence create an excellent research landscape within a strong bioeconomy-oriented industrial environment in NRW.

The NRW strategy project BioSC

With the NRW strategy project BioSC, the BioSC is receiving more than 58 million euros over three funding phases from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia to investigate means to achieving an integrated bioeconomy and to develop new bio-based technologies and products over the next ten years.

Expertise and Research Groups

Membership in the BioSC is organised in the form of Core Groups. With its form of cooperation, size and broad scientific basis, the BioSC provides ideal structural and content-related conditions for inter- and transdisciplinary networking by integrating basic and application-oriented research.

Technology platforms

The Bioeconomy Science Center realizes synergies and develops integrative approaches and joint technology platforms for the bioeconomy mission and thus seizes the opportunity to become an international innovation leader in this pioneering field.

Contact persons

The BioSC office coordinates a wide range of administrative and organizational affairs and thus supports the further development of the growing research network in terms of both content and strategy.
