Interviews underway for the sub-project “Insects in the bioeconomy”

In the scope of the BioKum sub-project „Insects in the Bioeconomy“, Ingrid Bunker has started carrying out interviews. The aim of the interviews is to explore the soceital acceptibility of cultivating insects on manure and the use of insects as protein-rich feed and to capture the attitudes, opinions, and concerns of different actors towards this innovation. First interviews will be conducted with livestock farmers in Germany, and further actors to be interviewed include insect producers, feed producers, feed retailers and policy makers.
