SusChem to play key role in European Innovation Partnerships

A strong commitment to playing a leading role in the European Commission’s proposed European Innovation Partnerships (EIPs) was evident at last week’s SusChem annual stakeholder event in Amsterdam.

SusChem_Cover.jpgSusChem, the Cefic/EuropaBio European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry, is looking to support four key EIPs – Smart Cities, resource efficiency in the process industries, water efficient Europe and raw materials for modern society.

The meeting heard from keynote speaker Waldemar Kutt (pictured left), a senior member of the cabinet of the European Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science, as he outlined the EIP programme and the thinking behind it. The EIPs form part of the EU’s Innovation Union strategy, itself part of the Europe 2020 strategy being developed to replace the Lisbon accord.

ICIS was pleased to be a media sponsor of the SusChem event and has produced an interactive review of the meeting – with video interviews with Kutt and leading SusChem board members. You can also read more about the event at the SusChem blog.
