Bio-trade and green growth


The research group was created in mid-2012, based on the lessons at the Master’s Degree in BioTrade and Sustainable Development and at the School of Social Sciences. This was a joint effort connected to common interests in BioTrade issues.

The group promotes a Seminar on Social Science Issues. On the other hand, it promotes knowledge and contributions on BioTrade and biodiversity.
