  • Chemistry Eurolabels®

    Such labels are based on the concept of subject benchmarks,

    written not in terms of „how many hours of lectures“ but of learning outcomes.

    For Chemistry: Budapest Descriptors

    Potential Skills Shortages

    Rodney P Townsend Chairman European Technology Platform on Sustainable Chemistry “SusChem”

    Recent studies indicate that EU Chemical Industry is likely to suffer from skills shortages.

    Some shortages from a mismatch between the requirements of industry and taught courses e.g. academia focuses on synthetic chemistry but 40% of EU chemical production involves formulation chemistry.

    Two thirds of chemical companies currently have difficulties in filling vacancies.

    Analytical Science in Industry

    Klaus-Peter Jäckel Head, Analytical Dept. BASF Ludwigshafen

    No new products from R&D without analytical science

    No registration of products without analytical science

    No efficient production without analytical science

    No sale of products without analytics for product release

    Total expenses for analytics are < 5% of R&D- und production budget

    Today analytical science is an important element of the value-added chain of any chemical company.

    Foresight Required

    Device horizon scanning activities.

    Set up a small working group, e.g. with people from JRC, ECTN, Eurachem, CEFIC, SusChem, EuCheMS.

    Involve universities as well.
