Info about event
Are you part of the Aarhus University Centre for Circular Bioeconomy (CBIO) - or just interested in the work that takes place at the centre?
Then you are welcome to join the CBIO Summit 2022, which takes place in Silkeborg on 17 and 18 May.
CBIO promotes skills and research facilities at Aarhus University within the utilisation and recycling of biological resources towards the society - industry, farmers, municipalities, national and EU authorities and NGO’s.
- Now it is time to look more into developing our internal competencies, and on how to organize us in relation to other interdisciplinary centres at Aarhus University. We have composed an exciting program - but most importantly, we want the participants to contribute with ideas and questions for developing collaboration across departments and expertise, says Uffe Jørgensen, who is the Centre Leader.
