Strengths of Europe
•
•
•
•
•
1st class research landscape
Network of big companies and SMEs
Well developed markets (common market)
Proximity of knowledge and industrial value chain
Ability to deal with complexity
Need for a well- articulated European innovation model that:
 builds on own strengths
 keeps / create / bring back value to Europe
 in a quite short timeframe
EU Innovation Union:
Visible leading role for Chemical Industry
Bring policy and business models
closer together

Value chain
“Innovation chain” : from research to innovation up to
competitive manufacturing
“Value chain” : cooperation of the relevant business sectors
(from raw material to final product) to ensure delivery of
products and processes

Horizon2020 - what we like
• EU wide approach and significant increase of funding volume
• Focus on output rather than being descriptive
• Coordination of programmes through bridging actions
• Inclusion of piloting and scale up
• Distinct funding line for Key enabling technologies
• Focus on excellence; structural improvements n cohesion policy
Horizon2020 – what needs strengthening
• Simultanious stimulation of value chain
• Research and innovation follow different driver – need for fitness
check of instruments for innovation (e.g. timelines)
• New model for PPP on innovation rather than existing ones for
research only (more risk taking)
• EU strength is network of big and SMEs – rules for participation
to promote networking (challenge also for structural funds)
• Improved role for „revised“ EU Technology Platforms (researchinnovation- education) in Innovation Union
• Benchmark against global performances of regions

8 Take home messages
•
Research ≠ innovation, specific EU Innovation model needed
•
Innovation in industry and public bodies especially in mindset, not only more funds
•
Innovative ways of working together – cross border, more public-private
commitments
•
Innovation along value chain is key for success in EU
•
Activate all resources also regional, but adequate complexity
•
‘Show me’ rather than ‘tell me’ as policy guideline
•
Strengthening existing & new industries for growth and jobs
•
The EU Chemical industry, a world leading sector, is committed to drive growth
and jobs through innovation in Europe
