How does ISPT make the Dutch process industry more sustainable?

Our idea is that through open innovation companies can be more successful. Open innovation means that companies share practical experience and R&D ideas with each other – rather than just doing this alone or inhouse.

That is where we play our part: creating a trust-based environment that connects the parties involved and facilitate their sharing of expertise and know-how in joint projects. This gets development off to a flying start and accelerates feasible, innovative and sustainable solutions that will lead to full circularity by 2050.
