Blue bioeconomy is primarily aquatic circular economy and extends our current system boundaries for bioeconomic use from the land (29% Earth surface) to the oceans (71% surface). Aquatic ecosystems are sensitive and not "domesticated". There are hardly any cultivated landscapes under water. Use, management and disposal must be gentle and sustainable. The blue bioeconomy will grow mainly in regions with access to natural, large water areas (especially coastal regions), such as in northern Germany ... or at the Baltic Sea!
The DBU would like to establish an inter- and transdisciplinary location-independent fellowship on the Blue Bioeconomy. Up to 10 fellowships are to be awarded.
The framework conditions of the CEE Fellowship Programme apply to the awarding of the fellowships.
Suggested topics and hosting institutions in Germany can be found here.
You can apply for this interdisciplinary fellowship until 05.09.2021 and 05.03.2022 via the regular CEE Fellowship Programme. Please prefix the title of the project with "College-Blue Bioeconomy".
