SusChem 2015 - Register now!

It is now less than one month until the 2015 SusChem Stakeholder event that is taking place on 8 and 9 June at the Sheraton Rogier Hotel in Brussels. Registration is now open and places are going fast! The main focus of the event will be the recent SusChem Strategic Innovation and Research Agenda (SIRA) and how it will be implemented. And there will be a brand new feature: an Open Innovation SME workshop!

The theme of this year's event is 'Propelling Sustainable Chemistry to exciting new frontiers - Implementing the New Strategic Innovation and Research Agenda'.

As part of SusChem's goal to foster collaboration between larger chemical players and SMEs, the event will see an Open Innovation SME workshop on the afternoon of 9 June. This special event will be followed by a poster session and our always popular speed-dating brokerage session.

Participants will experience first-hand the creation of new partnerships as innovative SMEs from across Europe pitch their brilliant ideas and technologies to big chemical companies in three technical fields:
  • ICT for chemical and biotechnology processes
  • Eco-innovation technologies
  • Advanced materials and nanotechnologies

Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity! Register now to avoid disappointment!

  • The presentation of the key highlights addressed in the SIRA by SusChem Board members, followed by a stakeholder breakout discussion on how to translate the SIRA into tangible action
  • Conclusions from breakout session discussions to be addressed in a lively panel debate on day two, and
