Bioeconomy

-
Erwin-Schrödinger-Saal
Plenary / Panel
german language

The fact that growth will not last forever and resources are limited has contributed to the disappearance of many advanced civilisations. Global warming and imminent shortages in global food and energy supplies call for better, more sustainable and more balanced economic models. Bioeconomy uses living systems that have evolved over millions of years of evolution.
