The Bio-based Innovation Student Challenge Europe (BISC-E) encourages students to explore the emerging bio-based work field while developing a new bio-based product or process.

BISC-E is a Dutch initiative, promoted in Denmark by Aarhus University Centre for Circular Bioeconomy (CBIO) that aims for promoting science and development of biobased products. Next to new knowledge and innovations, fresh talents are needed for the transition to a biobased society. BISC-E is one of the means to inspire young talents to work in the emerging biobased sector.
