Living Ecosystem is a research program of HZ University of Applied Sciences, Avans and Hogeschool Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences to accelerate the transition to bio-based materials.

Lecturers, researchers and students from the universities of applied sciences are working together with governments and companies to this end.

"It is clear that the transition requires other research questions and methods, other facilities and other research coalitions," he says in an article on the Agro and Chemistry website.
