2nd ECP Summer Summit – European Chemistry Partnering
The ECP Summer Summit is an industry speed dating event for the chemical industry and its diverse user industries, e.g. the plastics, food, construction, automotive, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, textile and consumer goods industries. It is built around 20-minute partnering discussions on innovations in chemical production and changes in chemical value chains. The partnering discussions can be arranged in advance between the participants. In addition, companies can introduce themselves in short presentations, called pitches. Participants on the day will be able to watch all pitches on the ECP Video Platform for free. Furthermore, the day is accompanied by an exhibition. The tone of the partnering is set by an introductory impulse lecture and a final panel discussion.
Chemistry makes the world go around: 97 percent of all products contain at least one chemical process step: renewable raw materials, enzymes, industrial biotechnology, new processes, products from residual materials, digitization, etc. are changing chemical value creation, from purchasing logistics to production and on to marketing and sales. It is of no surprise that the need for interdisciplinary exchange is growing rapidly. The ECP is designed to support an international chemistry community, that wants to extract more innovations from what already exists, to grow and to grow together.
About 300 participants from large companies, medium-sized businesses and young growth companies will come together at Henkel’s headquarter in Düsseldorf. Especially start-up companies use the marketplace of the ECP to talk to investors and established companies about capitalization and cooperation. Service companies and qualified consulting firms in the chemical industry complement the field of participants. Join in and be part of the future!
