Bio4Energy to Open Popular ‘Pilot Research’ Course to Students from Non-member Organisations - Video

After a successful first run of its Biorefinery Pilot Research course in 2013, Bio4Energy has decided to give PhD students outside the B4E cluster the possibility to enroll in it when it is given again this year.
The course is one of several in the Bio4Energy Graduate School, launched in November 2012, to fill a void in Sweden's higher learning system. It is designed to give student researchers—previously only those affiliated to B4E—the opportunity to learn about and engage in the work at some of Sweden’s most high-technological biorefinery pilot and demonstration units.
“There is no other course in Sweden that takes a close look at operations at these pilot units. This is why we have chosen to open [the 2014 application] to external students. [In the Bio4Energy Graduate School] we offer two unique courses which mirror the Bio4Energy research environment. Apart from the focus on techniques for biorefinery production there is a course in system analysis, Systems Perspectives on Bioresources, said Rova, professor at the Luleå University of Technology (LTU) in northern Sweden.
