Securing competitiveness in the bio-industry: Jacobs University Bremen involved in international training program
Progress in the bio-economy is increasingly threatened by a lack of trained engineers and scientists. An "Innovative Training Network" (ITN) funded by the European Union as part of the Horizon 2020 program aims to close the gaps in research training. Headed by Hector Marcelo Fernandez-Lahore, Professor of Biochemical Engineering, Jacobs University Bremen is involved in the interdisciplinary and international program. The project is funded with 505.000 Euro over a period of four years.
