European Master in Biological and Chemical Engineering for a Sustainable Bioeconomy

Beginning of the second semester for the 2nd intake

After a common semester at the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne in France, the Bioceb students from intake 2 are now studying either atTallinn University of Technology (Estonia) or AgroParisTech (France), depending on the study track they chose before integrating the programme.

Students from tracks 1, 2 and 3 spend the semester in TalTech.

During their first days, the 17 students presented their Green Line Projects (GLPs1.1., 1.2, 2, and 3) and their S1 results to the supervisor’s teams at TalTech and shared their plans and expectations for S2.

They enjoyed fruitful discussions and mingled with the professors and staff members from Department of Chemistry and Biotechnology and Department of Materials and Environmental Technology.

Students from tracks 4 and 5 spend the semester in AgroParisTech.

7 Bioceb students are studying AgroParisTech, and a German student joins them for several weeks, as part as an Erasmus + exchange.

On February 1st 2022, the AgroParisTech teaching and administrative staff welcomed the Bioceb students on the Massy Campus near Paris. It was the opportunity to present the overall organisation of the semester to the Bioceb students. Each professor described the content of the courses and the activities which will be undertaken throughout the semester.

The second part of the welcome day was dedicated to the visit of the experimental Hall Nicolas Appert and the Food’Inn Lab, both hosted by the AgroParisTech Massy campus. Specialised in Food Engineering research, the experimental Hall Nicolas Appert contributes to the education of engineer students and technicians of food companies and to the transfer of process engineering knowledge to food, pharmaceutics, cosmetics and biological industries. Inaugurated in 2017, the Food’Inn Lab is the AgroParisTech incubator, hosting several start-ups in the field of Food innovation. The main aim is to reinforce the links between research teams, students and entrepreneurs around innovative food projects thanks to offices, labs as well as an experimental kitchen. The presence of the Hall Nicolas Appert and the Food’Inn Lab on the Massy campus will be an asset for the Bioceb students as they will have the opportunity to exchange with young entrepreneurs and high-skilled scientists involved in research and innovation.

We wish the students good luck for the second Semester at TalTech and AgroParisTech!
