23rd February 2018, Frankfurt am Main

The European Chemistry Partnering, ECP, took place for the second time on 23rd February 2018. The concept of “industry speed dating” for the chemical industry and its user industries was very well received: More than 500 participants from 31 countries. 106 presentations by chemical Start-ups, SMEs and large companies. More than 1,200 partnering meetings and 53 exhibitors. The ECP will take place twice a year from now on.

"My passion is to bring together decision-makers from all parts of the chemical industry, across borders, to talk about innovations," says Holger Bengs, the initiator of the European Chemistry Partnering. "Get out of the daily business routine and refuel for a whole day. Exchanges at the ECP can lead to tomorrow's business. Putting one and one and one together doesn’t make three - but 111. The delegates were very enthusiastic because of the high ratio of industrial participation."

From now on, the European Chemistry Partnering will be held twice a year to encourage regular exchange. For the first time, on 25th September 2018, there will be an ECP Summer Summit. The main sponsor will be the consumer goods manufacturer Henkel. The September venue is the headquarters of Henkel in Dusseldorf. On 26th February 2019, the 3rd European Chemistry Partnering will take place again at the Kap Europa in Frankfurt.


97 percent of all products contain at least one chemical process step. Chemical value creation processes are changing in the face of renewable raw materials, enzymes, industrial biotechnology, new processes, products from residual materials, digitization, etc. - from purchasing logistics to manufacturing and on to sales and marketing. Interdisciplinary exchange is gaining in importance. With the ECP, the chemistry community is growing, keeping chemistry at the forefront of health and wealth development.
