Skills Development in Europe: The biotechnology MSc meeting industry needs

The EFB Task Force on Education, Mobility and Professional Qualification is contributing to the organisation of a workshop in Brussels entitled "the biotechnology MSc meeting industry needs − European perspective, recommendations and roadmap", to be held on the 18th November. The workshop will address some of the major issues in translating the European policies on Skills, and the strategy on Bioeconomy, into educational practices at our Universities. The recommendations resulting from a project surveying the Masters of Science in Biotechnology will be debated, and a distinguished group of panellists will discuss with the participants proposals for a roadmap and future projects to be presented under the Lifelong Learning and Horizon 2020 programmes.

Everyone is encouraged to participate, with particular emphasis to those members involved in Biotechnology and Bioeconomy teaching, course organisation and skills development who will benefit from the network to which EFB is contributing to, and who wish to participate in future projects and funding initiatives. The exact venue of the meeting will be communicated soon.
