Starting from the need to foster the thematic link between Circular Economy and BioEconomy, both having for example, food waste, biomass and bio-based products areas of intervention, the project “Adrion Master On Circular Economy and BioEconomy (AMOCEAB)” aims to raise specific competences in these fields, through the establishment of a Transnational Network, an a Master’s Degree Programme in the ADRION Area. The project involve high research institutions and business support centres within the ADRION Area.
Project main aim:
AMOCEAB aims to increase specific skills through the establishment of a Transnational Network and the organization of a Master’s Degree Programme in the ADRION Area. This Master will enhance the skills of the students involved and will support business organizations to develop solutions and know-how focused on the green sustainability. Main topics:
- Environmental engeneering
- Circular Economy
- Social impact
- Sustainable business models
- Development of solutions and knowledge on Circular and Bio-Economy
- Development of a joint academic path to create new expertise on Circular and Bio-Economy
- Increase the capacity of universities & business support organisations to produce expertise in Circular and Bio-economy solutions
- Creation of a transnational network of universities & organizations active in the Circular and Bioeconomy fields
The “Adrion Master On Circular Economy and BioEconomy (AMOCEAB)” project, led by Prof. Dr. Borut Rončević at the School of Advanced Social Studies in Nova Gorica (FUDŠ), is a significant initiative funded by the Interreg ADRION Programme, supported by the European Regional Development Fund and the Instrument for Pre-Accession II Fund. The project is set to span nine months, commencing on January 1, 2023, and concluding on September 30, 2023.
This collaborative project involves a partnership consisting of ten partners, seven of which are universities across different countries, including:
- Polytechnic University of Marche UNIVPM, Italy
- Alma Mater Studiorum – University of Bologna UNIBO, Italy
- Particular Research Funds Account of Technical University of Crete TUC, Greece
- Agricultural University of Tirana UBT, Albania
- University of Sarajevo UNSA, Bosnia and Herzegovina

The primary goal of the AMOCEAB project is to foster a thematic connection between Circular Economy and Bioeconomy, particularly in areas such as food waste, biomass, and bio-based products. This is achieved by creating a Transnational Network and developing a Master’s Degree Program in the ADRION Area.
The Master’s program in Circular Economy and Bioeconomy offers a comprehensive two-year English education, providing students 120 ECTS credits. This first-level Master’s degree program is accessible to graduates who have completed a three-year degree in either Engineering or Economics. It is ideal for those interested in advancing their knowledge and expertise in ecological transition and sustainability.
The program combines traditional classroom instruction with practical activities, including laboratory work. Students will acquire essential skills and operational tools needed to assist companies in managing sustainability and circular economy processes. The curriculum begins with interdisciplinary engineering and management training, followed by specialised courses tailored to specific areas of interest within the circular economy and bioeconomy sectors.
One unique feature of this Master’s program is a mandatory international exchange period lasting at least six months. During this time, students can study at partner universities within the Adriatic-Ionian region, where all lessons and activities will be conducted.
The Master’s program is a collaborative effort involving several prominent universities, including the Polytechnic University of Marche (UNIVPM), Alma Mater Studiorum – University of Bologna (UNIBO), Technical University of Crete (TUC), Agricultural University of Tirana (UBT), University of Sarajevo (UNSA), School of Advanced Social Studies in Nova Gorica (FUDŠ/SASS), University of Zagreb (FFTB UNIZG), and Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy, University of Belgrade, Republic of Serbia (FTM-UB).
Admission to this program is open, but applicants must have completed a three-year degree in Engineering or Economics to be eligible.
