The Master’s program (level II) in Bioeconomy in the Circular Economy (Biocirce), offers an extensive training program for professionals interested in working within the bio-based goods and services industry using biological resources and bio-technological processes. The program allows the professionals to go in depth in all the aspects related to the production and marketing sides of bio-based products, whilst using the latest technology.Students study the entire value chain of bio-based products: the production of raw materials in agricultural ecosystems in diverse climatic regions, the properties and supply logistics of biological resources, the bio-technological and industrial processes used to convert these resources into (new) bio-based products, and the marketing and consumption of final products. Studying the entire value chain for bio-based products give to professionals the opportunity to deal with the environmental, social and economic dimensions of the bio-economy from a micro and a macro level perspective, including innovation, institutions and policies.
