The 3rd ECP Summer Summit took place on September 17th and 18th 2020 for the first time as a two-day online event. FCF acted as Diamond Sponsor. More than 400 participants from 43 nations met online in workshops, for partnering discussions, in seven theme rooms or at the “virtual coffee machine” to exchange ideas.
Arno Fuchs (CEO) gave a presentation about “Financing opportunities and trends in the Chemical / Life Science sector”.
Florian Theyermann (Director) participated in the panel discussion “Sustainability: How does our finance eco-system influence innovations in chemistry?”, thereby addressed the need for innovation regarding global challenges such as population growth, climate change and the coronavirus.
Initiator of ECP, Dr. Holger Bengs, appears satisfied: “ECP is digital: the baptism of fire has been passed. Despite the Corona crisis: people from all continents met here to make the world a better place. We need innovations, and we need them fast, in view of climate change and our environmental and health challenges […].”
The 5th European Chemistry Partnering will take place – again as a digital event – from February 24 to 26, 2021.
The European Chemistry Partnering is an event which focuses on discussion about innovation along the chemical value chain. It is aimed at decision makers, innovation managers and investors in the chemical industry, its user industries as well as industry-focused stakeholders, qualified service providers and consultants.
