Our goal is to transform the entire polyolefin system from a linear to a circular one by bringing together organisations from every point in the polyolefin chain: brand owners, retailers, waste management organisations, recyclers, converters, producers and everyone else. Through dialogue and collaboration in working groups, PCEP is delivering innovative solutions to today’s barriers. Polyolefins are extremely valuable and versatile plastics. They are also vital materials if we want to decarbonise our society and have high quality, safe, eco-friendly lives. But we can't do that by simply throwing plastic away after we've used it. We must be responsible for the plastic that we produce ― and that means only making what we need, designing it for re-use in its first life, and then collecting, recycling and reusing it again and for as many lives as possible. PCEP is a collaborative organisation with three strategic goals for polyolefins: designing out waste; keeping maximum products and material in use for as long as possible; and then recycling into high-quality new raw ;

National Contact Points (NCPs) perform valuable services in guiding and supporting national applicants in preparing proposals for Horizon 2020 funding. We expect that through an enhanced cooperation and networking between these national entities, a higher quality of their consulting services and thus of proposals and projects can be achieved. Therefore, the overall objective of NCPs CaRE is to form a joint cooperation network of experienced and less-experienced NCPs on Societal Challenge 5 (SC5) “Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials” which aims at pooling their resources and know-how to raise the overall quality of services provided to their clients. By involving 23 formally nominated National Contact Points across Europe, the NCPs CaRE project will significantly strengthen transnational cooperation. In addition, NCPs CaRE will extensively involve the 26 NCPs that have decided to become a “Partner Organisation (PO)”, associated partner. To harness synergies is especially relevant to SC5 NCPs, since potential applicants within this challenge are very diverse with respect to their scientific or organizational background, level of experience, involvement in transnational networks. Specifically, activities of NCPs CaRE towards this goal include, amongst others, teaming and twinning schemes, the compilation of best practices handbooks and manuals, events, meetings and trainings both on-line and on a face-to-face basis, as well as a wide range of other communication and dissemination tools and platforms. These activities foreseen by NCPs CaRE will contribute to enhancing the impact of R&I in SC5 and ensure a more efficient use of resources and R&I developments by improving the workflow between NCPs, applicants, the European Commission (EC), and other parties with a stake in SC5. Tailor-made like they are for the SC5 clientele, these activities will make it easier for all those participating, and benefitting NCPs to enhance the number of proposals with regards to both quantity and quality.

The province of Gelderland lies in the east of the centre of the Netherlands. In terms of area (5,137 km2) it is the largest of the twelve provinces of the Netherlands. Gelderland’s 51 municipalities are home to 2 million inhabitants. The region has a varied landscape with forests, large rivers and rural areas. You will also find modern urban hubs such as Arnhem, Nijmegen and Wageningen with international secondary schools and universities supporting the knowledge-based economy. The province of Gelderland occupies a strategic location. Bordering Germany and the European hinterland, the province acts as an important portal for the Randstad (the conurbation encompassing the cities of Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht), Schiphol Airport and the Port of Rotterdam. Just like the other Dutch provinces, the province of Gelderland has its own administration. The provincial government has its seat at Arnhem, which is also the capital of the province. From there the province carries out its core duties and in doing so occupies an intermediate position between national government and local municipalities. The province coordinates, monitors and makes decisions on matters such as traffic and transport, urban and country planning and the environment. This mid-level position makes the province especially suited to making assessments from a broader perspective, which are nonetheless geared towards its own municipalities and region. Due to the fact that as a relatively small region Gelderland itself does not have much clout within Europe, it seeks partnerships with other regions through membership of European networks like the Association of European Regions, the Association of European Border Regions and Partenalia. Through the GO programme in conjunction with the province of Overijssel, Gelderland is investing 164 million euros of European money in the regional economy between 2007 and 2013. Gelderland is active in Europe and Europe is active in Gelderland.

MUSE GRIDS () is a research project which aims to demonstrate a set of both technological and non-technological solutions to optimise the self-production and use of energy in local areas. To achieve this aim, two large-scale pilot projects will be implemented in different European contexts where there are weak connections with the national grid: Oud-Heverlee, a rural neighbourhood in the Flanders region of Belgium, and Osimo, a hilltop town in the Marche region of Italy. The MUSE GRIDS project explores the best solutions for areas that for geographical and logistical reasons have weak connections to the national grid, and showcases how, interacting together, the different energy vectors of a local energy grid can contribute to the development of local energy islands, maximising local energy independency and reducing operational costs. Through a participatory approach, the project will encourage the active involvement of the inhabitants in the pilots, with the aim of developing local energy communities where citizens can collaborate to produce and exchange energy to achieve greater reliability. Finally, successful implementation of real sustainable energy islands will contribute to meeting energy demands and reducing carbon emissions. The concept will also be promoted on a wider scale through the establishment of virtual demo-sites in India, Israel and Spain. Various social and environmental aspects will be considered in terms of the transition towards a fully integrated smart multi-energy system. Further activities include the organisation of workshops and webinars targeted at citizens and stakeholders, at both a national and international level, and the redaction of position papers and policy recommendations in collaboration with the BRIDGE initiative. The MUSE GRIDS consortium is composed of 18 partners from 7 countries, including universities, research centres and leading EU companies of the energy sector. The 4-year project started in November 2018 and is funded under the Horizon 2020 framework “LC-SC3-ES-3-2018-2020 Integrated local energy systems” (grant agreement No 824441).

The platform fteval was founded in 1996 with the aim to contribute to more evidence in technology policy. The overall aim is to achieve “a better common understanding between administrators, funders and evaluators." This included the discussion and development of best practices and a discussion of methods, an exchange of experience with other European countries on expert level as well as the discussion on the importance of standards of the European Union for Austria.In order to further support the evaluation culture in Austria and to inform about new developments in the RTI system, which are relevant for evaluation, the platform has developed a broad portfolio of activities and support offers. Within the framework of regular events - such as the country series organised in cooperation with the BMWFW and the WWTF - national and international experts in the area of RTI policy and evaluation are invited for an exchange of ideas. With irregular intervals, international conferences are held on the evaluation of RTI policies, which support an exchange between science and practice. The latest one was the Open Evaluation Conference, for which we were able to win 60 presenters and 250 participants from all five continents. The ‘fteval inside: fteval insight’ event series is a particularity within the portfolio, as member organizations invite each other to present their activities with a self-selected thematic focus and discuss them in an informal framework. This is the Platform’s only internal event format.The Platform’s most long-standing product is the fteval Journal for Research and Technology Policy Evaluation, which arose from the earlier so-called "Newsletter". The journal contains both practical and academic contributions to the topic of RTI policy evaluation and contributes to supporting and safeguarding this discourse across the various stakeholder groups. In more than 40 editions of the journal more than 200 articles were published, predominantly in English. Thematic special editions as well as open editions provide a broad thematic framework.The fteval standards of evaluation in research and technology policy form an important building block for the further development of the evaluation culture. These serve to provide a reference framework for the evaluators, the commissioning bodies and those who are evaluated. The standards aim also to achieve a higher degree of commitment and security for all stakeholders. The standards were developed by the member organisations in a joint process, which started with the institutionalisation of fteval in 2002. The current version of the standards is from 2012. They have been revised in a collaborative process.A further central activity of the platform is the collection and publication of the Austrian evaluation reports in a specially designed repository. The availability of some 300 evaluation reports, studies and strategic documents on the website of the platform contributes to the transparency and visibility of the activities in this policy area. In addition, the platform regularly organises trainings, is available for specific consultation and participates in national and international exchange of knowledge through participation in relevant events of other organisations.
