For the coming months several BioSC events are being planned. In September a workshop on nutrient recycling with algae takes place in Jülich. In October there is the next BioSC Spotlight on „Smart management of plant performance“ in Aachen. In November, as in every year, the internal BioSC Forum and the public BioSC Symposium take place, this year in Bonn.
The 2nd Global Bioeconomy Summit took place April 19 – 20, in Berlin. It was hosted by the German Bioeconomy Council and was attended by around 700 participants. The BioSC co-organized the workshops on biorefineries, bioeconomy education and \"Measuring and monitoring the bioeconomy\".
Research, innovation and education at all levels form an indispensable basis for the development of sustainable bioeconomy concepts. At the 2nd Global Bioeconomy Summit the BioSC was a co-organizer of a workshop on bioeconomy education.
From June 26 to July 9, Prof. Gregory LeFevre, University of Iowa, stays in the Core Group of Prof. Ulrich Schwaneberg, RWTH Aachen. Main topics of his research are biotransformations in relation to the impact and fate of various contaminants in the environment.
Within the “Tailor-made bio-based ingredients for a competitive bio economy” support initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research, the two NovoSurf project partners successfully raised third-party funds to carry out the NemaContAnt joint project. This project evaluates the use of rhamnolipids to control plant parasitic nematodes.
From May 30 to June 1, 2018, the “International Conference on Renewable Resources & Biorefineries (RRB14)” took place in Ghent (Belgium). Participants from science and industry met for the 24th time to discuss the topic of bioeconomy.
