BioGov.net partners Selenia Marinelli and Susanna Albertini from FVA – New Media Research, delivered the open-access publication about the BioGov.net project methodology, in the context of the 16th annual International Conference of Education, Research and Innovation, which took place on 13-15 November 2023 in Seville, Spain (doi: 10.21125/iceri.2023.0612). The paper describes the methodological approach developed in the project to link art to bioeconomy education, based on different innovative formats and case studies stemming from the intersection between these two domains that could help inspire, engage, encourage creative thinking, and facilitate inclusion.

In particular, the publication shows how the project includes educational approaches based on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics), which represents a new form of teaching seeking to promote curricular integration between science, technology, engineering, mathematics and the arts. This concept enlarges the previous education approach based mainly on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and builds on the fact that arts-based approaches and methods can help drive the change towards a more sustainable, just and inclusive transition.

Through practical examples and case studies, the following dimensions of the BioGov.net methodology are tackled in the paper:

  • Art to elicit new ways of thinking and develop skills needed in bioeconomy education;
  • Art to address different learning styles and facilitate inclusion of marginalized groups;
  • Art to communicate messages, inspire people and raise their interest and awareness;
  • Inject the bioeconomy in Cultural and Creative Industries professionals.
