Survey on students’ perceptions of bioeconomy entrepreneurship

Ensuring the success of the EU Green Deal requires information about how the public understands different bioeconomy solutions. To understand the viewpoints of young citizens and future professionals, our team at EFI’s Bioregions Facility has developed a survey on students’ perceptions and attitudes towards bioeconomy and entrepreneurship.

The Bioeconomy Perceptions Survey targeted at students is an important tool to help regions learn more about their own bioeconomy ecosystem. It aims to provide insights into how students of higher education perceive the role of entrepreneurship in the field of bioeconomy, as well as related opportunities and challenges.
