> Venue: Henkel in Düsseldorf

The European Chemistry Partnering (ECP) now takes place twice a year: Following the success of the 2nd ECP in February with more than 500 decision makers, the organizers have responded to the wishes of many participants. For the first time the ECP Summer Summit will be held on 25th September, 2018 in cooperation with Henkel, the consumer and industrial goods company. The event will take place at the Group's headquarters in Düsseldorf.

Dr. Holger Bengs, the initiator of the European Chemistry Partnering explains: "The ECP Summer Summit follows the same format as the well-known European Chemistry Partnering in February: Pitches and Partnering, i.e. exchanges regarding innovation along the chemical value chain, remain the focus. In addition, there will be an impulse lecture by Henkel and a closing panel as well as an accompanying exhibition". He adds: "We are proud to be working with Henkel, an industrial partner that lives innovation and is open to fresh interdisciplinary ideas.”

Dr. Paolo Bavaj, Head of Corporate Venturing at Henkel's Adhesive Technologies business unit, explains his company's commitment: "European Chemistry Partnering is the best Start-up event in the chemical industry, it enables us to make contact with a variety of exciting technologies and outstanding entrepreneurs. I am very pleased that we are hosting the ECP Summer Summit at Henkel in Düsseldorf in support of this excellent format and thus providing a stage for Start-ups".

The European Chemistry Partnering and the ECP Summer Summit are targeted at decision makers from industry as well as investors. Representatives of large corporations, SMEs, young growing companies and Start-ups utilize the ECP format equally for both intensive exchange and new business contacts.


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.

From 2018 onwards the ECP will occur twice a year. In February the venue is Frankfurt. In late summer, the ECP Summer Summit takes place in changing locations.
