National level objectives
SusChem UK provides a coherent voice on sustainable chemistry in the UK. It provides an avenue to influence the European Commission, through SusChem, on topics which are important to the UK’s chemical and chemistry-using industries.
The NTP enables SusChem and the UK funding bodies to understand the links between European programmes and UK programmes. It also enables the UK to understand the impact of new Commission driven initiatives such as Public Private Partnerships, European Innovation Partnerships and Knowledge and Innovation Communities.
