Annual Meeting 2020

Chemelot InSciTe is knowledge driven and society oriented. Together with our partners, we develop biomedical materials for clinical application and we develop new and sustainable production methods for chemicals from renewable resources. We are committed to accelerate the road from concept to market and validate the impact of our work. We unite a community of R&D and businesses at our annual meetings to share know-how, expertise and experience and report the progress and outcome of our projects. For four years now these meetings have always been an inspiring exchange between universities, industries and entrepreneurs.

This year our annual meeting in September was a little different than before: an inspiring virtual event instead of a physical get-together because of the Covid-19 impact. This event was broadcasted live at 29 September 2020 as a 2 hour inspiring and innovative online show in which we illustrated how we are ‘Connecting Communities’ for the accelerated development of innovations. We were pleased to hear a lot of enthusiastic reactions from our participants for offering both a biomedical and a biobased livestream, which are still available to watch here:

Both the streams and single videos are made available in Youtube. You are more than welcome to share these within your network. If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to

We hope to welcome you again next year. Take care and stay connected by following our socials!
