Public Private Partnerships will accelerate innovation and improve the competitiveness of many industrial branches in Europe. Communication and coordination are crucial for the success of these initiatives. These are two important conclusions of the "ACHEMA Manifesto on PPPs within the Bioeconomy" that has been published this week.
The ACHEMA Manifesto is the result of the two-day event "European Bioeconomy - From knowlege via demonstration to products and markets" that was held on June 20-21, 2012, in Frankfurt in connection with ACHEMA. High-ranking speakers from industry, science, politics, and research institutions discussed in five topical sessions the current state of bioeconomy in Europe, the political framework, access to biomass, lessons learned from the market-entry of biobased products, and new funding schemes.
The final panel discussion focussed on the planned European Public Private Partnerships. The summary and conclusions of this discussion have been compiled in the "Frankfurt ACHEMA Manifesto on the PPPs within the Bioeconomy".
