European Technology Platform For SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY

CREATING SOLUTIONS TOGETHER

National Technology Platforms

SusChem National Technology Platforms (NTPs) help to connect SusChem thinking with national and regional programmes, to facilitate trans-national collaboration and to advise SusChem at the European level on collective national priorities that need to be considered in European initiatives. SusChem NTPs are key to the involvement of national stakeholders including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), large companies and academic groups, in European initiatives.


The SusChem network, formed by the European and the National Platforms, is aimed to capitalize on the synergies of its members to reach the critical mass to achieve its goals at European and National level, while avoiding duplication of efforts.  


The common objectives and mutual benefits of ETP SusChem and SusChem NTPs include:


  • Work under the common label of "sustainable chemistry”;
  • Bring together industry, academia, civil society and national governments to address Europe societal challenges and improve industry competitiveness;
  • Contribute to develop a EU-wide common strategy to support the position of the Chemical sector towards the European Commission ("bottom-up” approach);
  • Align priorities of the ETP and of the NTPs in order to gain broader support (a complementary "top-down” activity)
  • Promote SusChem vision and main priorities at both EU and National level (complementary perspective)
  • Facilitate transnational collaboration within R&I projects and the international transmission of skills;
  • Facilitate networking, cluster creation, project teams, etc. to enhance participation in EU funding programmes, especially for SMEs. 


Currently, SusChem NTPs have been created in 12 countries.
