SPIRE Stakeholder workshop - 2 October 2018
The Sustainable Process Industry through Resource and Energy Efficiency (SPIRE) is currently revising its original SPIRE 2030 Roadmap to create a Vision 2050 with an increased level of ambition. As part of stakeholder consultation, A.SPIRE is organizing the "Stakeholder Workshop: Sustainable Process Industry Strategy Towards 2050’, which will take place on Tuesday 2 October in Brussels.
The aim of this workshop is for SPIRE stakeholders to review and validate the SPIRE 2050 Vision, establish collaborative agreements with Member States and other contractual public-private partnerships (cPPPs), and provide the momentum for the development of the SPIRE 2050 Roadmap. This is an opportunity to openly discuss the vision with all stakeholders, including SPIRE members, representatives of the European Commission, Member States and regions, members of the European Parliament, civil society and other partnerships. SPIRE wishes to create closer alignment and collaboration.
SPIRE is providing significant added value to industry, SMEs and society in H2020 and we aim at a higher contribution in Horizon Europe through our new SPIRE2050 Vision. Our ambition is to increase competitiveness and help the EU process industry position itself as leaders of the transition towards a carbon neutral and circular economy and society. In addition, SPIRE calls for strong support of industrial technologies in Horizon Europe, as these technologies are key to achieving many of the objectives highlighted in the new proposed vision.
