The workshop has been initiated to provide a platform to discuss challenges and recent progress in research on renewable energies and on the transition towards decarbonisation and the bioeconomy. Scientists, stakeholders and experts of the authorities discuss technological and socio-environmental implications of using renewable resources for energy and material supply. Technological and institutional options are looked at in their systemic interplay to foster sustainability.

In 2017 there will be workshops on various topics, such as subsurface energy systems, the technological use of microbes for energy and material supply, the sustainable deployment of wind energy, and on the perception and acceptance of new energy infrastructures.

The workshop will be held in English.

UFZ Final Workshop BioEconomy 2017
HOW TO MANAGE BIOECONOMY REGIONS?
Lessons learnt, visions & tools

The BioEconomy Cluster integrates several industrial and research partners, and works for accelerating innovation in the wood-based bioeconomy field, with a focus on the Central Germany region. In this project, the Bioenergy Department at UFZ has coordinated the Scientific Accompanying Research, which aims at the development and implementation of sustainable strategy concepts and management tools for the BioEconomy Cluster. Partners of this Accompanying Research are the ÖKON and UPR Departments at UFZ, as well as the DBFZ Deutsches Biomasseforschungszentrum gGmbH and the Leipzig Graduate School of Management (HHL).
The tools developed within the Accompanying Research are meant to serve as support tools for the optimization of processes, products and cooperations within the cluster, thus helping in implementing the technologies developed within the cluster.
This Workshop has been organized to present the different tools developed by the involved UFZ partners, and to close the activities of the Accompanying Research.

The workshop will be held in English.

The workshop takes place right after the UFZ Energy Days.

On 12th December 1991, the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ)
was founded in Leipzig. A few months later, in April 1992, the official inauguration took
place in the presence of Karl Heinz Riesenhuber, the former Federal Minister of
Research and Technology.

PopBio is the annual international meeting for people working in the field of plant population biology and ecology. This years motto is “Population Biology in a Changing World” which will be tackled in five subfields: demography, population and evolutionary genetics, pollination, mechanisms of invasions and plant-pathogen and plant-herbivore interactions, for which international leading experts will give key note lectures. We expect that the conference will define the state of the art in plant population ecology, set the research agenda for the next years and give insights into novel tools to empower in particular young scientists to analyse population-ecological data.
