BIO-Save promotes smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in the European Union by adopting a transnational approach to address:

  • Sustainability: Post-graduate students and biotech practitioners are often passion-driven and lack entrepreneurial mindset so the BIO-Save programme provides them with entrepreneurial skills in order to make the biotech sector more sustainable.
  • Skills and Mobility: The rapidly changing climate and environment require the professionals to be equipped with: entrepreneurial and networking skills to make them more competitive internationally, and digital skills to acquire much needed competences and expand their professional knowledge. To fit contemporary European teaching standards based rather on competences than on job profiles the new trends of Education 4.0 will be applied that align human to technology and offer competence-oriented learning process and Industry 4.0-oriented skills to gain these competences.
  • Cooperation: To support the sustainability of the university-business educational model, the BIO-Save international cooperation expands the scope of knowledge and skills exchange and benefits to provide opportunities for countries to share expertise with the aim to improve their higher education systems and increase the quality and skills offered by the biotech study programmes.
  • Intersectoral relations: The main benefits from the European-wide cooperation between the academia and the business for working on the BIO-Save Knowledge Alliance model are:
    • Strengthening the countries’ higher education institutions and recognition of qualifications and certification.
    • Reinforcing the supply of skilled biotech professionals.
    • Modernising the higher education systems in line with the innovations in biotechnology and digitisation.

Not adding value is the same as taking it away.
