Important EC reports published & upcoming Zero Pollution Stakeholder Conference

The European Commission recently published two important reports under the European Green Deal priority and a third one will be presented at the Zero Pollution Stakeholder Conference on December 14, 2022! 


The first report, the Strategic Research and Innovation Plan (SRIP) aims to accelerate the shift to safe and sustainable chemicals and materials. The plan highlights research and innovation needs to guide this transition as well as funders in their investments. The plan was first announced in the 2020 Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability and is part of the Green Deal zero pollution ambition. Click here to read our full entry and find out more. 


The second report presents Horizon projects supporting the Zero Pollution Action Plan, providing an overview of the contribution of selected Horizon 2020 projects to the nine flagships of the Zero Pollution Action Plan. The report also identifies new projects and Horizon Europe partnerships in the pipeline, raising awareness about the five EU missions and their contribution to achieving the zero pollution ambition.
