Collaborate to innovate: ecosystem-based approaches in the industry

The search for sustainable alternatives, navigating new regulations or dealing with supply chain issues are just a few of the problems the industry is currently facing.

In an era of unpredictable mid-/long-term markets, unreliable feedstock options and “data-first” mindsets, a single organization is not able to unravel this intertwined web of problems all by itself.

Collaborative ecosystems should be utilized to drive innovation, to create resilience and to solve common problems - for instance by developing joint industrial standards and guidelines or merging expertise to create unique and novel solutions.

This session will introduce the topic, elaborate common ecosystem practices and highlight best practices in the industry.
