Facts about the ECP

The ECP has proved that many times during the past 6 years. All together more than 5000 participants and more than 800 start-ups have attended the event.

Since its initiation in 2017, the ECP has become a melting- pot for start-ups, SMEs, corporates, investors, and user industries: At the ECP you will find support for your cooperations, institute or projects. Originally ECP stood for “European Chemistry Partnering” and developed into a worldwide partnering event especially since digital partnering was established in 2019 and the event broadened its scope to include more industry fields. The background is that chemistry or chemical and biochemical know-how is included in 97% of all products. Today it is therefore a “must-attend” event, not only for those from the field of classic chemistry, and not just petro-chemistry, but the full range of chemistry including every kind of product or process imaginable and even for materials yet to be invented.
