The KTN provides the secretariat and connects with the SusChem European Technology Platform, managed by Cefic, the European Chemical Industry Council.
SusChem UK provides a coherent voice on sustainable chemistry in the UK. It provides an avenue to influence the European Commission, through SusChem, on topics which are important to the UK's chemical and chemistry-using industries.
It enables SusChem and the UK funding bodies to understand the links between European programmes and UK programmes. It also enables the UK to understand the impact of new EC driven initiatives such as Public Private Partnerships, European Innovation Partnerships and Knowledge & Innovation Communities.
Chemistry Innovation's Strategy – now integrated into the Knowledge Transfer Network - and published in June 2013, provides a foundation for the UK's exploitation of Sustainable Chemistry to promote and accelerate innovation which will benefit the chemical industry but also the downstream sectors that use chemicals and chemistry.
