In 2014, Dutch and Brazilian partners joined forces in the so-called Living Lab Biobased Brazil. This consortium consists of universities, companies and governments from both countries. The focus region in Brazil is the state of Minas Gerais.

The purpose of the Living Lab is to further internationalize higher education in both countries. By globalization and an alternative approach to natural resources, the human capital agenda is in motion. This changing human capital agenda refers another level of education of new professionals.

Living Lab wants to contribute to this changing human capital agenda by to improve student and professor mobility, stimulate innovation developments through joint education (like MOOCs and Biobased Battle) and applied research programs and developing other projects. All this with a focus on the biobased economy in the Netherlands and in Brazil (Minas Gerais).
