SPIRE at the SusChem Stakeholder event

The 11th SusChem Stakeholder event 'The root of EU Growth and Jobs: Innovative Materials and Processes' will take place 14 – 15 May 2013 in Brussels. The meeting will primarily address the benefits of partnerships to boost EU growth and improve its competitiveness.

SusChem has evolved into a Europe-wide platform that captures the full benefit of Europe's strengths in research and a well-connected network for innovation in the chemical and biotechnology value chain. The new SusChem 2020 strategy retains research, innovation and education actions at the heart of the platforms activities. This is important to engage with policy makers and partner organizations to shape research and innovation policies and deliver truly sustainable innovation that creates value in and for European society.

SusChem is also a leading proposer of one of the first innovation-driven Public-Private-Partnerships to be developed in the European Union: the Sustainable Process Industry through Resource and Energy Efficiency (SPIRE) initiative.

A session presenting the SPIRE Public-Private-Partnership to the stakeholders of SusChem and named 'Commitment and engagement - Stakeholder dialogue on SusChem priorities: Resource Efficiency PPPs' will be held on May 15 at 9:30.
