Innovation across Regions: Shaping Solutions for Resource Efficiency in Europe

To mark the end of a successful 3-year FP7 project, the project team of Chemical Regions for Resource Efficiency (R4R) will present its final findings and recommendations at its closing event on Wednesday, September 30th 2015, in Nice, France during the ECCE10 + ECAB3 + EPIC5 conference.


Gathering policymakers, regional experts, captains of industry and academia, this workshop will be an ideal place to hear the key learnings from the R4R project and an excellent discussion forum to exchange and discuss ideas on how chemical and related industries along their chemical value chains can be transformed into eco-efficient high-technologies solution providers.

Join us to:


Learn about the role of regions in resources efficiency.
♦ Discuss with policy makers, industrial players, entrepreneurs and academia during our networking breaks.
♦ Engage in discussions during dedicated panel debates with mentors from our 4 flagships to implement recommendations towards a resource efficient Europe.
♦ Witness success stories with keynote speeches from representatives of our 6 European regions.
♦ Explore our exhibition space.
♦ Shape future prospects for the R4R flagship projects, including topics such as industrial symbiosis, education and bio SMEs.

About R4R
Under the Chemical Regions for Resource Efficiency (R4R) project, launched in November 2012, six complementary European chemical regions came together to overcome fragmentation and create a platform for international collaboration on resource efficiency. A Joint Action Plan was developed comprising tools and best practices to improve the triple helix collaboration between the participating regions involving industry, academia and public sector.
