The chemical industry faces diverse challenges these days. Issues like digitisation, process improvements or ecological responsibility shape a new operation setting for companies. The pressure to innovate is high while the time needed stays an obstacle. Ambitious corporates rely on cooperative approaches to innovate. They use the dynamics in the startup scene to speed-up their research and development efforts.
The "Chem-Match: Corporates meet Startups" event brings impetus to the chemical open innovation. Like in the successful 2019 edition, we match corporates with startups from the fields of chemistry, biotechnology, bioelectronics, environmental technologies and sustainability, digital process management and digital innovation.
Together with Chemical Innovation Exchange CIEX Europe, Infraserv GmbH & Co. at Industriepark Höchst and 5-HT Digital Hub Chemistry & Health, Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH and Enterprise Europe Network offer a two-days event format plus a webinar for startups for meeting and discussing about corporate-startup collaboration.
