Aim of the summer school: In order to facilitate further learning and wider multiplier effects (i.e. reaching a wider audience than those attending individual events), BE-Rural will organise a summer school for teachers interested in developing curricula and educational material on the bioeconomy. The summer school is primarily targeted at teachers from BE-Rural’s OIP regionsbut participation is open to teachers from other regions and countries. The summer school will include both theoretical and practical elements, with presentations from practitioners. 

Language: The summer school will be held in English.

All the attendees of the teachers’ summer school will get a CPD (Continuing Professional Development) certificate.
