About us

Bioeconomy involves the use of biological resources, products, and principles in all economic sectors. Bioeconomic societal transformation is frequently proposed as a potential pathway to achieve sustainable development.

This webpage is maintained by social science oriented junior research groups supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) under the Program „Bioeconomy and Societal Change“. It aims at sharing research results and at informing about ongoing research activities and related events.
