CircularCityChallenge develops a competition-based approach to educating functional urban design in support of circular systems and the use of nature-based solutions. The project intends to design curricula for teenagers in different school types, resulting in an improved education on circularity. CircularCityChallenge is part of the ERA-NET Urban Transformation capacities which has received funding from the European Union’s H2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No. 101003758 (FFG grant agreement No. 42073329).


Launched in November 2022, GenB is a 30-month project focused on bioeconomy and funded by the EU Horizon Europe research & innovation programme. The aim of the project is to raise awareness on Bioeconomy building on communication and education that encourage and reward young BIOVOICES to take a role in steering the transition towards more sustainable lifestyles. The project will therefore involve young people with the overall objective of inspiring and encouraging future generations to demonstrate awareness, sensitivity, and interest in environmental issues, sustainability, and circularity.

Die Lebendige Naturschule (LeNa) Göppingen

The ‘Lebendige Naturschule’ (LeNa) Göppingen is a free school in the process of being founded with the vision of accompanying children on their individual learning path in an appreciative and holistic manner. We combine interest-based learning in a prepared ambience with practical experience in the nature and in social environments. In everyday school life, we focus on peace pedagogy, mindfulness, democracy education, ethics and sustainability. Thereby, the educational emphasis is in bioeconomy education, considering all three pillars of sustainability – environmental, social and economic – in a balanced and holistic manner.


GreenScent – Smart Citizen Education for a Green Future – aims to educate and empower the people of Europe to change their behaviour towards the environment by fostering empathy for the planet. At GreenSCENT, we believe that behavioural change is vital to achieve the objectives set out by the European Commission’s Green Deal of climate neutrality on the continent of Europe by 2050

Bioeconomy Youth Ambassadors

The European Commission (RTD Bieconomy) launched on July 2022, the EU Bioeconomy Youth Ambassadors program selecting 15 young Europeans to promote awareness about the Bioeconomy.

The Ambassadors are between 18 and 32 years old, representing 11 nationalities and living in 12 different Member States from all areas of the EU.  They have expertise in various fields related to bioeconomy food systems, forestry, blue bioeconomy, bio-based industry, science communication and activism.

Their mission is to educate, act, and engage stakeholders on the role of bioeconomy to tackle the climate crisis and protect nature.


The DairyMix project aims to advance sustainable circular mixed farming systems for dairy production through the development and application of innovative modeling techniques. By utilizing multi-criteria assessment, DairyMix seeks to enhance circularity and environmental, economic and social sustainability of dairy production systems across key European regions and in Argentina, exploring crop diversification options and agroforestry. Ultimately, DairyMix aims to showcase decision support necessary to improve overall sustainability of the dairy sector by establishing an educational online platform targeted to farmers and other stakeholders.


ECF4CLIM develops, tests and validates a European Competence Framework (ECF) for transformational change, which will empower the educational community to take action against climate change and towards sustainable development


The aim of LOWINFOOD, “Multi-actor design of low-waste food value chains through the demonstration of innovative solutions to reduce food loss and waste”, is to provide the necessary demonstration and upscale to allow market replication. The core activities of the project are all focused on the evaluation of the efficacy of these innovations in reducing food losses and waste. The impact of the innovations will be evaluated considering the amount of food waste avoided as well as in environmental and socio-economic terms.


NeoGiANT offers an innovative solution based on the known potent natural antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of grape marc extracts, due to their arsenal of phytochemicals. Suitable bioactive molecules from white grape marc will be identified, with a validation of their benefits (e.g., antimicrobial, antioxidant) and recovered for matching their sustainable sourcing and processing with efficient and cost-effective use in animal production.


The CIRCALGAE project, funded by Horizon Europe, aims to valorize the algae waste streams from existing algae farms in Europe. 

CIRCALGAE is interested in the most relevant macro- and microalgae biomass exploited in a sustainable way (change of cultivation parameters, taking into account seasonality or specificity of the cultivation region in different algae species).
By integrating all relevant players and the stakeholders, the project aims to build a viable economic model and propose new products adapted to the market.
