In order to ensure an exchange of knowledge between the individual projects and to be able to benefit from synergies, overarching work priorities and subject-specific issues are defined and discussed jointly in the cross-cutting topics in the form of workshops and networking meetings. Collaboration in the cross-cutting topics not only provides significant added value for the projects, but also promotes the overall impact of the funding measure. In many cases, joint publications are a result of this exchange.
Based on the results of the internal workshop on cross-cutting topics, it was decided at the first steering committee meeting to begin work on the following two selected cross-cutting topics:
- Cross-Cutting Topic 1: Products and markets
- Cross-Cutting Topic 2: Sustainability assessment
The scientific accompanying project TransPhoR supports the joint work in the Cross-cutting Topics not only organizationally (TransPhoR – FiW), but also participates technically with the superordinate scientific questions regarding (i) the plant availability of the produced P-recyclates (TransPhoR HGoTECH GmbH) and (ii) the life cycle assessment of the developed processes for a holistic sustainability assessment of the regional phosphorus recycling approaches (TransPhoR – INaB Institute for Sustainability in Civil Engineering of RWTH Aachen University).
More detailed information, materials and results from the cross-cutting topics will be published here on the homepage in the course of the funding measure.
