At the 4th European Chemistry Partnering (ECP), more than 1,000 participants from the chemical industry and its user industries will meet to discuss future projects and potential collaborations. Over the last three years, this unique meeting of leading heads of the industry has transitioned into an event that shapes the development of strategies and perspectives of entire industry branches. To boost this dynamic, the range of workshops at the ECP has been extended. The workshop “Digitization of the coating industry”, initiated by Orontec GmbH & Co. KG, is an excellent example of the creation of new perspectives live at the ECP.

Orontec ( develops innovative solutions for the coating and paint industry in the areas of measurement technology, software and process consulting. As an expert for metrology and process consulting based in Dortmund, ORONTEC wants to promote digitization in this industry. The workshop will be organized as a “World Café” and aims to develop and link up new ideas. It brings together experts from Orontec, from BENS Consulting Ltd. based in Slovenia, from Analytrics GmbH (Stuttgart), Sustragil (Münster) and from the Dutch Electric Ants Lab.

Key Account Manager Dr. Ulf Stalmach from Orontec explains the idea behind the creative workshop: “The paint and coating industry is a very traditional and SME-based part of the chemical industry. Many players find it difficult to orientate in the jungle of digitization buzzwords and to link it to their own industry. The workshop is designed to focus on industry-related issues and to develop solutions. There is no better place to do that than at the ECP 2020.”

Dr. Holger Bengs, CEO of BCNP Consultants GmbH and Initiator of the European Chemistry Partnering says: “Workshops like this one show the potential of the ECP, not just as an industrial speed dating platform but also as a creative and innovative accelerator for the circular industry and in line with the 17 sustainable development goals of the U.N. It is another encouraging proof of the innovativeness and the will to collaborate within our industry.”


97 percent of all products contain at least one chemical process step: renewable raw materials, enzymes, industrial biotechnology, new processes, products from residual materials, digitization, etc. are changing the processes in chemical value creation: starting with purchasing logistics on to production and finally marketing and sales. Interdisciplinary exchange is gaining in importance. With the ECP, an international chemistry community is growing that wants to derive more innovation from what already exists.
