The presentations from this year’s SusChem Stakeholder event are now online! The event which took place in Brussels on 14 and 15 May was the Technology Platform’s eleventh stakeholder event and demonstrated how SusChem is already working hard to engage with Horizon 2020 – the European Commission’s next major Research and Innovation Framework Programme.
The theme of this year’s SusChem Stakeholder event was ‘The root of EU Growth and Jobs: Innovative Materials and Processes’ and the meeting was held at the Sofitel Europe Hotel on Place Jourdan at the heart of Brussels’ European Quarter.
The presentations available include those given in the main plenary session as well as contributions to the parallel workshops on:
- Material Technologies /
- Resource Efficiency (SPIRE and BRIDGE PPPs)
- Critical Raw Materials
A selection of photos from the event are also posted on the website.
Over the rest of 2013 SusChem will be building on this work to be ready for the launch and first calls of Horizon 2020 in 2014. To support brokerage for the initial Horizon 2020 calls SusChem will look to provide a three step process:
- Defining strategic SusChem innovations via SPIRE and BRIDGE PPPs and other road mapping initiatives
- Stimulating project generation including the use of SusChem webinars to inform stakeholders on call content and possible areas of interest
- Full brokerage and proactive project follow-up.
A first SusChem Horizon 2020 Brokerage event will be organised during Q4 2013 when the final timetable for the launch and initial calls is known.
