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.
All the SusChem NTPs form the SusChem NTP network, which is one of SusChem’s major strengths. Representatives of the network meet at least once a year to exchange ideas and to work on common priorities. As a result, the network has made significant contributions to SusChem strategy and the promotion of SusChem thinking across Europe.
Currently, SusChem NTPs have been created in 11 countries.
