SSUCHY’s final event took place on February 9th, 2022 between 10:30 and 13:00 CET and gathered more than 135 attendees (for 150 registrations). It was organised under the auspices of SSUCHY’s partner and virtually hosted by the FEMTO-ST Institute at the University of Franche-Comté (UFC) in Besançon, France. IAR partner handled the organisation, the communication and event’s promotion activities. Thanks to all the partners and attendees, the event has been a great success. The quality of the presentations and the interesting discussions that derived from it made this event a key to future collaboration and business partnerships after the end of the project.
The scientific and industrial presentations have brought up the achievements on the new bio-based polymers, hemp value chain and the implementation of advanced functionalities in bio-based composites, incorporated in the 4 industrial demonstrators: a bio-based scooter, an automotive loadfloor, a cockpit panel for electrical aircraft and a green loudspeaker for acoustics.
