At its 2019 Stakeholders Event on November 27th, SusChem presented the new Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SIRA).
With its new SIRA, SusChem aims to respond to global challenges and aspires to bring its vision towards 2030. In order to find solutions for a more sustainable future, SIRA recommends high-level priorities and provides a technology roadmap.
SIRA’s priorities focus on the main pillars of SusChem: Advanced Materials, Advanced Processes and enabling Digital Technologies as well as their synergies. The horizontal topics safe-by-design, sustainability assessment, as well as education and skills are part of SIRA’s strategic recommendations for reflection and discussion.
SIRA reflects the strategy and role of sustainable chemistry and industrial biotech in boosting innovation in Europe, in the context of Horizon Europe and beyond. As the European Commission is currently developing the Horizon Europe framework, SIRA can be used as a guideline for drawing up Horizon Europe’s programmes and future project calls.
The new SusChem SIRA is the result of a collaborative and cocreation effort, across Europe, together with all SusChem stakeholders. Catalisti would like to thank all experts in its network for their valuable contributions.
