Phosphorus recycling in innovation management – TransPhoR contribution at the ISPIM Innovation Conference in Ljubljana
The scientific accompanying project presented the BMBF funding measure Regional Phosphorus Recycling (RePhoR) and discussed potential barriers to market entry of wastewater-derived phosphorus recyclates in the context of innovation management.
The ISPIM Innovation Conference is held annually in varying locations around the world and this year was the 34th time it was organized and held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in collaboration with regional stakeholders. The organizer is ISPIM (International Society for Professional Innovation Management), which is concerned with the generation of innovative products, processes and services and their market entry and networks members with each other.
With this year’s focus of the event on Circular Economy, phosphorus recycling fitted right in. Therefore, in the block “EU Projects” Sophia Schüller was able to present the funding measure Regional Phosphorus Recycling (RePhoR) on June 7th and discuss challenges for market entry, e. g. legal issues. The session was moderated by Katrin Reschwamm (EUrelations AG).
The conference offered an exciting insight into innovation management and new impulses for the project, which are now being processed in the follow-up.
