The Processes4Planet (P4Planet) Partnership aim is to transform the European process industries to achieve circularity and overall climate neutrality at the EU level by 2050 while enhancing their global competitiveness. P4Planet is a European co-programmed public-private Partnership established between A.SPIRE – as the private entity – and the European Commission in the context of the Cluster 4 (Digital, Industry and Space) of Horizon Europe funding programme.
MC4 is part of the P4Planet broader, cooperative agenda to transform the European process industries towards climate neutrality, circularity, and competitiveness, named the 2050 Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA). 27 P4Planet projects have started in 2021 and 2022.
The systemic shift required to transition to a climate-neutral and circular society calls for more than technological innovation. The spirit of the Processes4Planet Partnership is to promote a holistic systemic socio-economic approach! The Partnership has strategic importance for the European industry, delivering impact on its global technical lead, as well as on the economic growth and creation of new high-skilled jobs.
