Societal Challenges

The key societal challenges that we all face are at the heart of SusChem’s work. We strive to provide sustainable solutions that will make a significant impact in addressing these challenges.

The SusChem Strategic Innovation and Research Agenda (SIRA) directly addresses five of the main societal challenges identified by the European Commission. This challenge-based approach enables resources and knowledge to be brought together across different fields, technologies and disciplines, and covers activities all the way from the laboratory to the market with a focus on innovation-related activities.

SusChem initiatives are primarily related to the following Societal Challenges (SC) each of which have a dedicated chapter in the SIRA.
