Green Chemicals

The Watify initiative is an awareness-raising campaign, funded by the European Commission, to stimulate the technological transformation of Europe’s industry. Watify is organising a matchmaking event on Green Chemicals in Barcelona, in occasion of the Barcelona Industry 4.0 week organized at Fira Barcelona.

OCTOBER 5, 2017 | 9:30AM-4:30PM Barcelona, Spain


  • Market evolutions, challenges and opportunities behind the production and use of Green Chemicals in Europe
  • Pan-European Inter-Regional Match Making event
  • Bilateral and multilateral meetings between public and private actors
  • Inter-regional / Cross-border cooperation on targeted focus areas


The objective of the matchmaking event is to facilitate inter-regional / cross-border cooperation between regional public and private sector actors in the development of joint initiatives /partnerships or joint demonstration projects in Green Chemicals – matching S3 priorities and exploiting identified synergies and complementary resources and strengths. Inter-regional or cross-border cooperation can help to exploit complementarities/synergies (i.e. different value chain positions, technologies, etc.), pool resources and infrastructures across Europe, address non-technological issues (e.g. standards) and enlarge the potential user-base.
