Tasks and objectives
The CCB promotes product and process innovations for new, cross-industry markets with a focus on value creation for its members. It provides support with the acquisition of funding through the »ConTact« contact center, the coordination of R&D collaboration, and the identification of new sales markets. Marketable solutions for innovative technologies and materials are developed in collaboration between large and small companies, universities, and institutes.
Business Chemistry & Innovation Platform
Sales and innovation requirements from various industries, such as aviation and aerospace, the paint and coatings industry, raw materials extraction, or the consumer goods sector are determined and coordinated with cluster members throughout Europe within the »Business Chemistry & Innovation Platform« initiative. Each year the Business Chemistry & Innovation Platform produces a variety of new industrial applications.
The CCB lives from the high level of activity of its members and close cooperation with regional and international networks and partners. Thanks to its broad range of contacts, the CCB is able to respond to special requirements and find appropriate solutions in collaboration with its members. Regular events, such as technical forums on specific topics, workshops, and start-up days, provide opportunities to obtain and exchange information on current topics.
ConTact – technology promotion & project financing
The joint contact center with the University of Bayreuth (ConTact) supports members with individual funding advice and project acquisition. A key role played by ConTact is the targeted initiation and accompaniment of cooperative projects between companies and research institutions. ConTact provides advice on appropriate funding programs, assists with project and consortium development in the application phase, and is also available for professional project management.
