Anchor points in the BLOOM project are five BLOOM hubs in different regions in Europe that form communities of practice. They are led by consortium partners who invite and involve network partners, such as regional triple helix partners and other bioeconomy stakeholders. Together, they build working teams that develop in co-creation workshops outreach activities and materials to strengthen increased public engagement in bioeconomy. The hubs and their focus areas are:
In the BLOOM project 20 pilot teachers from schools in ten different countries (Greece, Austria, Spain, Sweden, Poland, Italy, Belgium, Portugal, Israel, Croatia) who teach physics, biology, mathematics, engineering, technology or chemistry have been selected in order to develop bioeconomy teaching resources, test these resources in their classes, provide feedback on the implementation. Additionally, these teachers will encourage, train and support other teachers and schools to use and apply the developed resources. Moreover, the teachers will support and contribute to the development of a MOOC on bioeconomy and its applications in teaching, for primary and secondary school teachers.
