The prize winners of the “Think Biobased Challenge” have been announced on 14 March 2019, at a teacher conference on international Biobased education in the Netherlands.

The jury was chaired by Han van Osch, Program Manager at the Centre of Expertise Biobased Economy. Han has been enthusiastic about the level of the entries: “We have seen very interesting videos and animations that absolutely create awareness among young people. Education can certainly do something with this.”

Thanks to the “Think Biobased challenge”, nine entertaining sets of bio-based lessons have been created and can be used by teachers and students.
