V Edition of the BioCirce Master: Bioeconomy in the Circular Economy
Monday the 10th of February 2020 Naples hosts the Neapolitan module of the inter-university Master's Degree "Bioeconomy in the Circular Economy - BIOCIRCE".

The Master is organised by four Italian universities (Milan Bicocca, Naples Federico II, Turin and Bologna) and by four non-academic institutions (Intesa S. Paolo, Novamont, GFBiochemicals, Science park of Lodi). The SPRING-Green Chemistry and CLAN-Agrifood Technology CLUSTERS have also signed the founding agreement this year.

The Master has had prestigious awards since its establishment in 2017. In February 2018, the master was awarded the "Italiadecide" prize for innovation in teaching by President of the Republic.

The Master will open with the participation of the Rector of the University of Naples Prof. Arturo De Vivo, of the President of the Industrial Union Dr. Vito Grassi, of the Director of the Department of Agriculture Prof. Matteo Lorito , by the Councilor of the Campania Region Dr. Valeria Fascione.

This MS degree program provides skills and expertise necessary to deal with the full range of issues in this complex field. The program includes four compulsory modules (5 Credits each) given by the four participating Universities (modules cover relevant scientific topics as well as economic and legal issues) and a 6-months stage in one company or institution.

Training objectives: the aim of the module is to provide updates regarding advanced technologies for the industrial applications of enzymes and microbial cells as "cell factories". Activities will be focused on the concept of Biorafineries integrated with the territory. The module also deals with the identification and analysis of the opportunities available for a new venture, focusing on the research for entrepreneurial initiatives (academic and not) aimed at commercialising research outcomes. The aim of the course is to equip learners with the theoretical and practical tools for the recognition and structuring of innovative business ideas.
