On Friday 9 February, at Unitelma Sapienza, in the context of the Circular Bricks project final event, Susanna Albertini from FVA – New Media Research represented BioGov.net project, highlighting some key takeaways from its activities.

The round table “Challenges and opportunities in VET bioeconomy education” was moderated by Nadia Sansone, that brilliantly underlined the main ideas emerged during the discussion and launched new insights to animate the debate. Together with Susanna, also Chiara Pocaterra, representing APRE, and Annarita Colasante, representing Unitelma, brought contributions from several EU funded projects, like BIObec, GenB, RuralBioUp, Biomodel4Regions, BlueRev, BIOVOICES, Engage4BIO.

The main takeaways emerged during the round table are:

  • VET and Lifelong learning, as well as non-formal contexts where education takes place, are key to boost Bioeconomy Education in light of supporting a more circular and sustainable society and business
  • Bioeconomy is a metasector, requiring metaskills that can be considered transversal to any educational pathway
  • Young people should be informed and educated to change behaviours and attitudes and to become the driver of the transition, also by choosing these educational and working careers
  • Cross fertilisation and collaborations among academia and industries, as well as policy actors and public authorities are needed, to avoid bottlenecks in a fast evolving educational context
  • Art, beauty and culture can contribute to inspiring and attracting students towards these topics
  • In order to achieve greater impacts, the role of teachers and multipliers is determinant. Teachers should be empowered with knowledge and practical, easy-to-adopt tools to bring these topics into their contexts.

The round table was part of a wider conference, organised by Unitelma Sapienza and Circular Bricks and moderated by Prof. Piergiuseppe Morone.
