European Master in Biological and Chemical Engineering for a Sustainable Bioeconomy

Châlons-en-Champagne Agricultural Fair - September 3rd 2022

Within the frame of the Graduations Days of the first Bioceb intake, the graduate students took part in the Châlons-en-Champagne Agricultural Fair, and especially the Bioeconomy Village.

The Châlons-en-Champagne Agriculture Fair is the second largest agriculture event in France and a strategic event for Université de Reims Champagne-Ardenne (URCA) and the Champagne-Ardenne region. Furthermore, this year for the first time, a Bioeconomy Village was held within the Fair, co-organised by URCA, the Grand Est Region and the Wallonia Region (Belgium).

The graduate students presented the "Green Line Project pitch session".

During the GLP pitch session, each GLP group presented its project, by popularizing their work to an audience of 50 people from various horizons. Prizes were awarded by the jury to the most convincing presentations (criteria: pedagogy & clarity, originality and creativity, team cooperation, impact of the project for society).

The jury was composed of:
  Caroline Rémond: Professor in Biotechnology, Bioceb local coordinator, University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne;
  Franck Mode: Bioeconomy and research project manager, Communauté urbaine du Grand Reims Representative of Bioceconomy For Change;
  Stéphanie Clément: Head of Communication, Bioeconomy For Change;
  Sandra Domenek: Professor, AgroParisTech;
  Yevgen Karpichev: Senior Researcher, TalTech University.

The pitch session was also the opportunity for the students to meet actors of the bioeconomy industry, and for the Bioceb programme to be better known in the Reims region and in the bioeconomy sector.
