Viewing bio-economy through the lens of sustainable forestry Project in a Nutshell Instrument: Erasmus+, Capacity Building in the Field…
The BioEoN project establishes a Higher Education Institution (HEI) network of excellence for peer2peer learning and joint academic capacity building. Three European and three Vietnamese partners in the field of Sustainable Forest- and Bio-Economy merge different perspectives and connect a variety of stakeholders to address the challenge that bio-economy is not by itself sustainable.
Three universities from Vietnam collaborate with universities from Spain, Finland and Germany to develop innovative learning materials that offer students a multidisciplinary view on sustainable forest-based bioeconomy. By developing a new Master of Science Programme the participating universities modernise, renew and align their curricula towards multidisciplinary skills and competencies. The project partners internationalize to produce fit-for-job graduates in response to rapidly changing job markets. The six partners merge their expertise to develop the innovative Master of Science Programme.
The BioEcoN project promotes sustainable value creation in the Bio-Economy sector as it equips universities and future graduates with the required skills, methodologies and innovation to transform the sector. Among European Higher Education Institutions there are currently no courses offered with a similar focus on sustainable forest-based bioeconomy.

“The material on bio-economy we develop together can be used in our existing master programmes, in our courses as reference material for the students and also possibly in the future in a joint master degree.”Prof. Dr. Felipe Bravo Oviedor, University of Valladolid
“Bio Economy poses for me a big opportunity, the opportunity to put natural resources and their use more central into focus and to foster it in the political discussion. And I see it as a potential means to bridge this old conflict between natural resources uses and natural resource conservation.”Prof. Dr. Carsten Mann, HNEE
“The economy in Vietnam is growing very fast so, the country needs to develop a more green approach to economy and more sustainable. So bio-economy is an important factor here – not only for Vietnam.”Prof. Dr. Pham Van Chong, Vietnam Forestry University
