SusChem: An ETP2020 for Innovation and Growth in Europe

SusChem, the European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry, has released a new video describing its new role as an 'ETP2020'. The announcement of SusChem's achievement of ETP2020 status was made on 12 July 2013 and coincided with the publication of a European Commission document on a 'Strategy for European Technology Platforms: ETP 2020'.

ETP2020 organisations will be a valuable tool for Horizon 2020 and the ETP 2020 strategy seeks to maximise the impact of European Technology Platforms (ETPs), such as SusChem, on Europe’s competitiveness and sustainability.

The new SusChem video (below) features contributions from SusChem Chairman Dr Klaus Sommer, Waldemar Kutt from the cabinet of European Commissioner for Research and Innovation Maire Geoghegan-Quinn, and Fernando Moreno, CEO of Solutex and SusChem board member.

The video 'SusChem: An ETP2020 to Promote Innovation and Growth in Europe' describes the important role of Technology Platforms in EU research and innovation strategy and the specific objectives that SusChem has in areas such as resource efficiency, water, critical raw materials, smart cities, key enabling technologies, and education and skills.

The video concludes with discussion of the scale of the opportunity for SusChem to contribute to EU growth and jobs and the added value that SusChem brings to EU and transnational innovation initiatives. Enjoy!
