This project started in October last year, with a meeting in Prague. Our host was UCT Prague, who has the lead in this project. Partners are from Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Greece, The Netherlands and Romania.
Focus of our project is the bio-based economy (BBE). We identify what workers need to do and to know about new jobs in this growing sector. As soon as we have identified these competences, we will start to develop learning material. Both competences and learning material will be placed on a BBE Competences Navigator, in short Navigator. This Navigator is an online tool, where teachers, students and trainees can find information how to work in the BBE.
We are now so far that we have made an overview of competences. Soon, this list will be spread among the members of our network. We will provide you with a link in our next post. With this link you can enter a ranking list. We kindly ask you to fill in this list to get an impression which competences are the most important. Your contribution is really important for us. Of course, we will keep you informed about the further developments in BioComp.
We also invite you to to look around on this BioComp website. On a regular basis, we will add more news.
The BioComp project is not just for the project partners. We want to support the BBE in our countries. That is why we are very interested in your opinion. Please let us know what BBE means for you. What kind of training your employees need. And for teachers: Is BBE an issue in your learning program, in your curriculum. Do you need material? Training? Please let us know by leaving a reply. The more we know about your needs, the better we can develop customized materials.
Thank you for your cooperation.
