Objective

CAPITA aims to establish an enduring transnational joint programme in applied research leading to innovative and exploitable process technology for chemicals, materials, and energy. The ERA-NET is designed to have a substantial effect on the structuring and the effectiveness of the ERA in the fields of applied catalysis and related sustainable chemical research.

CAPITA aims to establish an enduring transnational joint programme in applied research leading to innovative and exploitable process technology for chemicals, materials, and energy. The ERA-NET is designed to have a substantial effect on the structuring and the effectiveness of the ERA in the fields of applied catalysis and related sustainable chemical research.
Core partners of the ACENET ERA-NET started the consortium, which aims to be extended geographically and by the inclusion of agencies involved in innovation support. The consortium aims to introduce new members, and to be flexible in how members participate. CAPITA will build collaborations both within Europe and worldwide with relevant programmes and institutions: the ETP SusChem and European Research Institute ERIC+ are engaged from the beginning of the project to bring both industrial and academic policy inputs to work on CAPITAs strategic agenda.
The ERA-NET begins where ACENET ended, with applied catalysis and catalytic reaction engineering, which comprises an essential group of enabling technologies for sustainable manufacturing and green chemistry. The scope will expand through the planned two calls and the formation of the Transnational Joint Programme to a wider approach to chemical process technology. The projects will include multidisciplinary science and engineering, with significant industrial involvement.
To maximise the innovative potential of the research projects, the design of calls and project selection and management will be steered by best practice and assessment processes to take into account how new technology interacts with the business process, and the decision making requirements of speedy innovation. Training and education programmes aimed to support innovation will also be developed as part of the network’s outreach programme.

Mapping

CAPITA ERANET is expected to deliver the European Catalysis Roadmap 2014 – 2020 (March 2014), which will be available to all stakeholders and will be used to identify relevant scientific themes, and through an annual updating process, provide the CAPITA Consortium with topics for research calls and education and reach-out activities.

CAPITA ERANET is expected to deliver the European Catalysis Roadmap 2014 – 2020 (March 2014), which will be available to all stakeholders and will be used to identify relevant scientific themes, and through an annual updating process, provide the CAPITA Consortium with topics for research calls and education and reach-out activities.
The goal of this study is to examine, taking into account existing national and European policy documents, the challenges facing innovation and sustainable development in chemicals manufacturing and energy production in Europe. To overcome those challenges it is needed to roadmap the developmental requirements in applied catalysis and process technology. These requirements are vital for addressing societal and industrial needs in energy, in environmental concerns for transportation and the quality of life and in sustainable chemistry for clean processes for the chemical and industrial intermediates and the switch from petrochemical feeds to recycled or renewable feeds.
A workshop with the participation of important stakeholders of the Applied Catalysis and Catalytic Reaction Engineering field was organized and held in Paris on 16 May 2013. The participants included representatives of Suschem ETP, ERIC+ European virtual institute, Japan Science and Technology Agency, Norwegian Science Council, National Science Foundation of USA, and Slovenian Science Foundation, researchers from different European universities and members of the CAPITA-consortium.
After taking into account the presentations of the impact that the ACENET pilot call had on the Catalytic scientific community, and the convergence of existing roadmaps towards a global roadmap in catalysis, the workshop revealed the necessity of networking of the European and world wide research unities, as well the industrial need to bridge the growing gap between research and innovation.
The second CAPITA conference on European Catalysis is expected to take place on 15 January 2014 in Brussels. The meeting will aim at mapping the current innovation and technological challenges among the academic and industrial scientists of the field, and initiate a process for bottom up extraction of the theme of the second CAPITA joint call.
