Project Launch CPNL

1 p.m.-6 p.m.

During this meeting, we will launch the selected projects for the Showcases & Research Projects grant application (RVO).

Starting and scaling up a project that is innovative and contributes to the transition to a circular economy is complex. In the different technologies, materials and sectors in which plastics are processed, finding partners for a good business case and financing pilot and demo plants is very challenging. As a result, it takes a long time for companies to demonstrate their value in the market, while the competitive position of companies in Europe is under pressure from cheap new plastics from China and the US.

By issuing open calls (grant applications), CPNL addresses bottlenecks, provides connections between organizations in the value chain and lowers financial barriers to test and scale up innovations. The first round of applications for projects and showcases closed in January. After evaluation (by RVO), we would like to invite you to participate in this inspiring afternoon, where the projects that have been selected will present themselves.(This selection was announced on May 1). Later (in the summer) announcement about the research applications through NWO is expected.

The projects together with the entire field of participants demonstrate the innovativeness and collective efforts to meet the challenges of our time.
