We are excited to share that KET4CleanProduction – Final Conference and Brokerage Event was held online on 10th June 2021. It was a full day of presentations, workshops and meetings starting all with the official launch of KET4CP platform hoping for a dynamic kick off! More than 120 delegates from SMEs, Industry, Research Centres, Universities, as well as public authorities, Enterprise Europe Network members and other organisations had registered to attend the Conference. In parallel, participants had the opportunity to book meetings and discuss technological collaborations during the Brokerage Event.
Project results and success stories from SMEs funded under KET4CP Micro Grant scheme gave inspiration for future adventures! We were glad to have Mr. Evangelos Meles, Policy Officer, DG GROW, European Commission, for an introductory speech and welcome! Ms. Alejandra Campos, KET4CleanProduction project co-ordinator, presented the platform and the new services explaining how the project activities and results led to their development. An article on the platform follows below. Three SMEs, KEKO Equipment Ltd. from Slovenia, AMG Technology Ltd. from Bulgaria and NEFFA Holding BV from The Netherlands, funded under KET4CP Micro Grant scheme presented their projects and the significant results they achieved in collaboration with Technology Centres. You can read more about each success story:
Success story 2. Functionalized Microcantilever Sensors for Air Quality Monitoring
Two special working sessions on “Digital production on demand” and “Industrial Biotechnology” set the tone dealing with common challenges!
In this working session, speakers and participants tried to clarify together “How additive production processes and sensorization can improve your production?” using interactive innovative methods and tools. Furthermore, leading technology centres showed the latest developments in additive production processes and the benefits by individualized production.
Working Session 2. Industrial Biotechnology- From lab to pilots in clean production
In this working session, participants had the opportunity to get to know some pilot plants partners and their stakeholders working in the bioeconomy. Virtual visits were organised to pilot plants showing how they work and what makes them unique. Use cases of SMEs working with a pilot plant during the implementation of a micro grant project were presented highlighting the benefits of a shared pilot facility.
