Bioenergy, Biorefinery and Bioeconomy


We wish to invite participation of early career researchers in a workshop on the theme "Bioenergy, Biorefinery and Bioeconomy: Promoting innovation, multidisciplinary collaboration and sustainability" in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 30th May – 3rd June 2016. This workshop is funded by British Council under the Newton Research Link programme. The workshop in line with the National Biomass Strategy 2020 and 1Malaysia Biomass Alternative Strategy (1MBAS) Initiatives is aimed at bringing together early career researchers, stakeholders and experts in bioenergy and biorefinery for knowledge transfer and systematic innovative solution between UK-Malaysia, with a vision of replacing fossil fuels and creating a sustainable and circular bioeconomy. The workshop will build research capacity in developing economies, facilitate links for future collaborations and enhance the associated researchers' career and early career researchers' professional developments. Specific areas, where applications are sought: Genetic engineering, tissue culture and biotechnology, environmental biotechnology, biochemical engineering, heterogeneous catalyst, green chemistry, process intensification and integration, utility systems design, biomass characterisation, thermochemical and biochemical processing, biomass production and management, integrated biomass and livestock management, health and safety and environmental protection, multi-objective optimisation, process systems, systematic eco-innovative advanced biorefinery design, techno-economic, life cycle and socio-economic assessments, life cycle sustainability assessment and circular economy. All travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by the Newton Researcher Links programme. Places are limited and participants are selected based on the information provided in the application form. The application form, with more details on the initiative, can be found in the enclosed document and the completed application form should be sent to before the deadline of 31st January 2016.
