Catalytic Processes for Innovative Technology Applications

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 ERANET is designed to have a substantial effect on the structuring and the effectiveness of the ERA.
Core partners of the ACENET ERANET start the consortium, which is extended geographically and by the inclusion of agencies involved in innovation support. The consortium aims to introduce new members, and will be flexible in how members participate. CAPITA will build collaborations both within Europe and internationally with relevant programmes and institutions: the ETP SusChem and European Research Institute ERIC+ will be engaged from the start to bring both industrial and academic inputs to working on CAPITA’s strategic agenda.
The ERANET begins where ACENET ended, with applied catalysis, which comprises an essential group of enabling technologies for sustainable manufacturing. The scope will expand through the planned two calls to a wider approach to chemical process technology. The projects will be 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 to take account of 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.
CAPITA will strictly timetable and manage its processes through production of an annual strategic template, setting out priorities for the next period. Learning from the network’s activities and contacts refreshes the strategic analysis which will over four years be converted to an agreement on structures and protocols for continued collaboration of all parties beyond the ERANET funding.
