SusChem Stakeholder Event 2018


The SusChem stakeholder event is the leading annual meeting held by the European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry (SusChem). This year’s theme is «The Future of Research & Innovation in Europe: Defining Technology Priorities for Sustainable Growth». Our annual stakeholder events bring together global audiences, senior players from the chemical industry, academia, research technology organisations (RTOs) and EU institutions to address common innovation challenges and debate priorities crucial to the sustainability of the European chemical and biotechnology sectors.

In light of the forthcoming European Commission (EC) communication on the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) and the overall structure of the next R&I Framework programme (FP9) to be published soon, this year’s stakeholder event is happening at a critical moment in the policy cycle. This presents a significant opportunity for stakeholders to voice their reactions and expectations to the Commission concerning the proposed MMF and FP9.

We have planned an exciting programme to give you multiple opportunities to voice your expectations and priorities for FP9 and help shape the next SusChem Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda.

Stakeholder input is essential to determine the game changing technologies, such as Key Enabling Technologies (KETs), that will boost European competitiveness as well as have large-scale impact at a societal level, and feed into potential FP9 missions.

The SusChem community recognizes the importance of digital technologies as an enabler for the development of advanced materials and processes. This year's breakout sessions will discuss how the latest digital technologies can be integrated into materials and processes for the future strategic R&I agendas beyond 2020.

Session ICreating the future with advanced materials: what are your priorities?

Advanced material technologies enable breakthrough application development across a wide range of value chains. Innovative products have a strong impact in improving the life quality of citizens, and offer solutions to many societal and environmental challenges. In addition, advanced materials open up a new horizon of business models, markets, and forms of interdisciplinary cooperation.

In this breakout session, you will be inspired by impactful examples in the field of innovative advanced materials development. In addition, you will be able to interact with different experts in the field of advanced material technologies and contribute to the next Materials Strategic Innovation and Research Agenda for Europe and their role in possible missions for FP9.

Session IICreating the future with advanced process technologies: what are your priorities?

Process Technology developments are crucial to the transition to a more circular, energy efficient, and carbon neutral industry. Sustainable process technologies are key to the utilisation of alternative feedstocks and the integration of alternative energy sources in the chemical sector.  As consequence, the development of advanced processes technologies is key to boost competitiveness and growth in Europe. 

In this breakout session, you will have the chance to exchange with experts in advanced process technologies and contribute actively with your input to shape the European Research and Innovation Agenda on Chemical Process Technologies and their contribution to possible missions in FP9.
