The objective is to assess the added-value generated by the two initiatives operating under Horizon 2020 working in parallel and to specify the main achievements of the actions taken up to date. This initiative reaffirms the commitment of both organisations to work towards synergies and complementarities.
Over the past years, the BBI JU and SPIRE have already been jointly searching for collaborative ways of maximising their impact. As early as 2012, a document identifying the docking points between the two public-private partnerships (PPPs) has been prepared, with the aim of ensuring mutual support. In 2016, the two initiatives established a Joint Working Group to coordinate the activities of seeking complementarities and synergies. SusChem has been a valuable partner in supporting the Joint Working Group to achieve the different milestones along the way.
