BIO-Save Learning Curriculum
Modern Biotechnology is of great essence for climate change mitigation and the sustainable growth of the green economy. EU Universities promote education in biotechnology, which can reduce the harmful effects on the ecosystems and the environment. Novel biotechnology approaches and technologies are among the reasonable options that could contribute to solving the climate change problems. The biotechnology current challenges and future perspective for climate change adaptation and mitigation are the up-to-date focus of the BIO-Save project.In this respect, the challenges of the BIO-Save Project are grounded on the design of an innovative multilingual multidisciplinary educational programme dedicated to modern biotechnology approaches for creating solutions to mitigate climate change at an international scale. It will strongly impact job growth, raising awareness about the potential of modern technologies to improve the quality of life and support global environmental problems solutions. The BIO-Save Learning Curriculum (Result 5) provides various e-learning opportunities such as offline/online availability of the principal training content, self(assessment) part, project-based learning approach, and additional training resources (cloud computing, QR codes, videos, 3D digital images).
The BIO-Save Learning Curriculum
created for students, professors, and practitioners, comprises the following topics
Module 1: Biotechnology for climate change mitigation
  • LO1. Reduction GHGs emission
  • LO2. Use of energy efficient farming
  • LO3. Carbon sequestration
  • LO4. Reduced use of synthetic fertilizer
  • LO5. Adaptation to abiotic stresses and evaluation of adaptation measures
Module 2: Biotechnologies for climate change adaptation in agriculture
  • LO6. Biotechnology approach to solve agricultural and natural resources problems and restore degraded ecosystems
  • LO7. Enhancing adaptive capacity of crops: Innovation in plant breeding to develop more resilient to climate change crop varieties for agriculture
  • LO8. Agro–ecosystem responses to the combination of elevated CO2, ozone, salt, and heat changes resulting from global climate change
  • LO9. Crop diversification and opportunity for climate change resilience
  • LO10. Use of new technologies and practices
  • LO11. Conservation and exchange of plant genetic resources
