The ECP is a unique event which offers an efficient partnering platform to help you find the right business partner in the shortest possible time. The first focus is on tech scouting which helps you to make connections with potential partners that support or share your vision of a sustainable future. Corporates can find new technologies to solve the problems of today and tomorrow. Start-ups and SMEs can engage in dialog with venture capitalists and representatives of industry.


Start-ups and SMEs meet Corporates and Investors: Corporates find Deep-Tech-Startups with high scale-up potential and innovative SMEs. You will find sustainable technologies in emerging markets, innovations to make your processes more efficient and new products for the chemical industry or its user industries. The ECP has proved that many times during the past 6 years. All together more than 5000 participants and more than 800 start-ups have attended the event.

Since its initiation in 2017, the ECP has become a melting- pot for start-ups, SMEs, corporates, investors, and user industries: At the ECP you will find support for your cooperations, institute or projects. Originally ECP stood for “European Chemistry Partnering” and developed into a worldwide partnering event especially since digital partnering was established in 2019 and the event broadened its scope to include more industry fields. The background is that chemistry or chemical and biochemical know-how is included in 97% of all products. Today it is therefore a “must-attend” event, not only for those from the field of classic chemistry, and not just petro-chemistry, but the full range of chemistry including every kind of product or process imaginable and even for materials yet to be invented.

Hybrid Event

This time, at the 7th ECP, you can benefit in two ways: The first day is live in Düsseldorf with 2 panels and face-to-face partnering at an exciting location: AREAL Böhler, where our partner, the Global Entrepreneurship Centre (GEC), is located. Innovative start-ups will also find this a good place to kick-start their businesses and get on the path to more sustainable solutions. In parallel you can use the partnering platform online for the whole 2 days 24/7 and connect with the ECP community worldwide.
