Save the Date: SusChem's 10th Anniversary Celebration
This year SusChem will be celebrating its 10th anniversary. And to mark a decade of sustainable chemistry research and innovation leadership in Europe the 12th SusChem Stakeholder Event will be extra special! Our 10 year anniversary celebration will take place over two days in Brussels: 11 and 12 June 2014.
The theme of the 10-year celebration is: 'Sustainable Chemistry: Always at the Forefront of Innovation.' At the event we will be looking for SusChem stakeholders to contribute to defining our new Strategic Research Innovation Agenda for the next decade and we will be celebrating SusChem successes stories from the past ten years.
Ten years of success
The SusChem European Technology Platform was officially launched in Brussels on 6 July, 2004 by the European Commission, together with Cefic and EuropaBio, with the aim to "increase the attractiveness of investments in chemical R&D and innovation in Europe."
“Research is the primary source of innovation in the knowledge-intensive chemical industry and is driving the sector forward,” said European Research Commissioner Philippe Busquin at the launch. “The European chemical industry has an impressive track record of developing new products and manufacturing processes, but the challenge is to improve the transformation of laboratory ideas into new sustainable products and services to boost EU competitiveness.”
