Report of the workshop on Impact of the SPIRE PPP
The first SPIRE Impact Workshop was held in Brussels on 21-22 April 2015. A selection of relevant FP7 projects from the NMP calls (28 in total), either completed or ongoing were represented, together with the first batch of 12 SPIRE projects with presentations in three serial session covering:
- Efficient Processes
- Process Control and Associated Parameters
- Sustainable and Circular Economy.
The purpose of the workshop was to allow the projects to report on success and allow for an assessment of the impact achieved. Depending upon the stage of the project this would either be the potential for uptake, or the exploitation achieved thus far. It was also anticipated to identify cross-cutting issues for the benefit of all such as the potential benefits of clustering and good practises to maximise impact. It was also an opportunity for the new projects to be introduced to SPIRE and understand the context of the funding through the PPP. This report details the outcome of the workshop together with the main recommendations regarding the execution of SPIRE projects to derive maximum value and synergy.
