8 reasons to join 5th ECP
Our mission is to bring international creative people from all points of chemical production and value creation into exchange, across genders, disciplines, regions, cultures, countries and continents.

These are your benefits:

  1. Find international partners: meet international business partners in the most direct way – online. ECP (February) and ECP Summer Summit (September) were attended by people from all continents.
  2. Get innovative ideas: Gain insight into the newest innovations through live online meetings. Exchange ideas to help fill your product pipeline or help further develop your technologies.
  3. Network in an interdisciplinary community: The 5th ECP connects global decision makers from very different areas along the chemical and production value chain: starting from base chemicals to fine and special chemicals up to consumer goods, from the B2B business arena to the B2C products side.
  4. Schedule meetings automatically: Scheduling is easy. Meetings will be automatically scheduled based on the availability of the meeting partners
  5. Make the right deals: Present your business ideas and products in live bilateral online meetings to the relevant decision-makers with the best fit to your vision; or get inspired by contacts from disciplines you do not meet in daily business.
  6. Follow-up efficiently: Further exchange your business ideas, innovations and challenges in an easy, fast and secure way based of the blockchain portal ipOcean Global was an idea out of 1st ECP Summer Summit and is now congenial partner of ECP.
  7. Save on travel costs: There’s no need to travel with our online meeting environment. Save valuable time and travel costs by getting in touch with new global contacts without leaving your (home-)office.
  8. Take advantage of affordable prices: Take advantage of the inviting discounts to lay the foundation for your future business.

The 5th ECP helps to leave the beaten track, to hang up the not-invented-here syndrome and invites you to get impulses by looking into other disciplines and to find congenial partners for new solutions; to make the world a bit more sustainable.

More Innovations to reach the 17 SDGs
Corona crises shows us two things:

  1. We urgently need innovations, not only in the health sector, but also in chemical production, communication, logistics, leisure, construction, care etc. and all areas that make our pleasant life possible.
  2. Creative collaboration works very well in the crisis: So what potential do we have if we get to know each other in good times, exchange ideas in a trusting community and become productive?

It is time now for more Innovations.
In order to reach the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals we need solutions to our challenges faster than ever: new, energy-saving processes and low-pollution production, new raw materials and more recycling, intelligent materials and environmentally friendly and healthy products for people and animals, from nutrition to the care up to the clothes.
