14 September 2017: BioEnergyTrain Buying-in Event

The BET consortium is organizing a Press Conference at TU Graz to launch the two new BET curricula and to promote the project.

In September/October 2017 two master programmes Biorefinery Engineering (BRE) at the Graz University of Technology and Bio-resource Value Chain Management (BVM) at the University of Twente will be implemented. The two BVM and BRE are unique compared to other master programmes because of the high involvement of the industry in developing the curricula.

To support  the widespread use of BET course materials, the BET consortium is organizing back to back with the press conference a BioEnergyTrain Buying-in event. External business, regional actors, HEIs and vocational training providers will be informed how they can benefit from the developed BET course materials or how to join the BET cooperative educational formats.
