Six selected Higher Education Institutions among China and Europe have agreed to work together in order to establish and implement a 120 ECTS equivalent Master Program on Bio-Based Circular economy in three Chinese Universities. The first edition has been set-up in September 2019 in the following Universities: Tongji University and East China University of Science and Technology, both from Shanghai, and the Sichuan University of Chengdu. The project BBChina, started in autumn 2017, aims to support the People’s Republic of China to fully exploit its large bioenergy potential, thus contributing to decreasing the present use of fossil fuels that dramatically increases the local pollution and that is strongly affecting the pollution at world level as well as global warming. To reach this aim the newly established Master program will deeply analyse the complex chain that starts from the biomass production and collection until the output of biorefineries, to the bioenergy production, to the biofuel utilisation as well as to the always more important integration with other Renewable Energy Sources, training future skilled human resources.
BBChina is a project co-funded by the Erasmus+ - Key Action 2 programme. Project reference number - 586083-EPP-1-2017-1-IT-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP
