Over the past years, the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) and the Sustainable Process Industry through Resource and Energy Efficiency (SPIRE) have been jointly searching for collaborative ways of maximising their impact. Particularly in 2012, a document identifying the docking points between the two public-private partnerships (PPPs) has been prepared, with the aim of ensuring mutual support. Later on in 2016, these two PPPs operating under Horizon 2020 have established a Joint Working Group to coordinate the activities of seeking complementarities and synergies between the two bodies. SusChem has been a valuable partner in supporting the Joint Working Group to achieve the different milestones along the way.
Following the collaborative work of the past years, BBI JU and SPIRE launch today a joint statement on team-up for synergy of actions, with the objective of assessing the added-value generated by the two initiatives working in parallel and to specify the main achievements of the actions taken up to date. This initiative reaffirms the commitment of both organisations to work towards synergies and complementarities.
