In February, the partners of the Thematic Area on Chemicals defined 4 thematic working groups – Alternative feedstock, Polymers, Chemical recycling and Sustainable Process Technologies – in order to enable focused discussions. Working groups have met several times over the past months to draw key priorities, exchange projects ideas to develop, and identify key regional actors. Stakeholders from the private sectors, research organizations, universities and clustershave since then joint the dialogue.
For this second plenary meeting, partners will have the opportunity to make further progress in each Working Group through parallel sessions. The 4 Working Groups will then pitch to each other, in a plenary session, the project ideas to be developed in the future. In this event, stakeholders will also receive hands-on expert advice on the recently launched Commission service –Technical Assistance Facility (TAF) in order to understand how to access this free service in the following months.
We encourage all regional stakeholders being companies, clusters, research and technology centers or universities, from partner or interested regions to join us in this event.
