Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree Bioceb

European Master in Biological and Chemical Engineering for a Sustainable Bioeconomy

Bioceb consists in a dedicated 4-semester MSc joint curriculum, with a core in-depth training in biotechnology encompassing biological resource diversity and optimal use, bioprocess design and upscaling, and biobased products engineering for targeted markets, with complementary focus on soft skills including project management.

In order to promote the development of sustainable and circular bioeconomy systems, the programme goes beyond the biomass processing technical issues, by providing knowledge of green chemistry principles, tools for socio-economic and environmental assessment, experience of facing real-life bioeconomy challenges through projects and examples of flexible biorefinery systems adapted to local contexts.

To deliver Bioceb vision, five European Higher Education Institutions pool complementary competences and approaches, all converging on the development of biotechnologies in the context of bioeconomy :

This consortium of five HEIs is supported by a network of 19 associated partners ; belonging either to academia or socio-economic world.

The added-value and originality of Bioceb relies on the integration of the consortium complementarities in a joint training programme, thus covering all the value chain, from plant resource to manufactured bioproducts, at all scales, from the gene to the industrial process, and addressing the related socio-economic and environmental stakes.

Bioceb provides a modular organisation favouring student mobility and international experience while preserving jointness and interconnection between the different possible tracks :

Bioceb study tracks

Modular trackTargeted scientific and management activities
Track 1 : Bioproducts, green chemistry, biomass engineering Production of tailored plants and microorganisms to increase the sustainability of the value chains (adaptation of plant to climate change, preservation of biodiversity and food resources, etc.)
Track 2 : Bioproducts, green chemistry, bioprocesses Design, optimization and up-scaling of processes for the production of biobased molecules, combining fermentation and chemistry and taking into account the principle of green chemistry (in particular waste reduction)
Track 3 : Bioproducts, green chemistry, materials, polymers Design and development of bioproducts and biomaterials in particular biodegradable materials, and exploiting the diversity of new structures
Track 4 : Agro-resources, value chain assessment, bioprocesses Design of new sustainable value chains and processes involving flexible multi-resources and multi-products biorefineries
Track 5 : Agro-resources, value chain assessment, materials, polymers Design of new sustainable value chains and products for bio-based materials, to substitute fossil-based solutions and create new products

After getting 120 ECTS from the Bioceb partner institutions, successful students will obtain MSc. triple degrees, according to their pathways within Bioceb and a Diploma Supplement in connection with the degrees obtained.
