Abstract

BE-Rural organised a virtual summer school for teachers interested in developing curricula and educational material on the bioeconomy (https://be-rural.eu/events/teachers-summer-school/). The summer school was jointly run by Dr Elsa João (University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland) and Rachel Moir (Skills Programme Manager, Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre). The dates, times and themes for each day were as follows:

• Day 1 – Tuesday, 25 May 2021, 14:00-17:30 CEST – Introduction to the bioeconomy and overview of the bioeconomy educational resources developed by BE-Rural.
• Day 2 – Tuesday, 1 June 2021, 14:00-17:30 CEST – Bioeconomy of different sectors (e.g. fisheries, agriculture) and how best to integrate bioeconomy teaching in schools in Bulgaria, Latvia, North Macedonia, Poland and Romania.
• Day 3 – Tuesday, 8 June 2021, 14:00-17:30 CEST – Developing the industrial biotechnologists of the future: the innovative work of IBioIC with Scottish schools.

This report includes the material presented during the summer school (that are also available for download on the BE-Rural website). In addition, and most importantly, it includes results of the polls carried out and data generated from the discussion sessions. The report also includes a summary of the results of attendees' feedback questionnaires.
