SusChem, the European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry, involves trade bodies Cefic and EuropaBio and was set up in 2004 as part of the European Commission's initiative to spur innovation across industry sectors in the EU.
The technology platform has already produced:
- engagement with the wider stakeholder community in an open dialogue;
- an integrated, shared vision of a more sustainable future EU chemical industry;
- a European Strategic Research Agenda for innovation in the prioritised chemical technologies;
- an Implementation Action Plan that provides recommendations for mobilisation of resources for collaborative R&D, on sustaining a strong European chemical science base and on improvements for EU innovation framework conditions.
