BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON THE ECCM ADVISORY COMMITTEE
The Advisory Committee for Electrochemical Conversion & Materials (ECCM) advises the Dutch government on behalf of the top sectors HTSM, Energy and Chemistry, on what is needed to make the transition to a CO2-neutral industry based on intermittent sustainable energy generation, storage and conversion.
ECCM is a cross-sectoral theme to achieve this goal. The committee coordinates efforts on this theme at national level, by initiating new cooperation initiatives and by adapting initiatives that fit within the scope of the advisory report issued by the committee. From a national perspective, the committee advises the government on which efforts are required for cooperation across the entire innovation chain.
In addition, the committee is building a true ECCM community of knowledge institutions, companies, governments and NGOs. To this end, the committee organizes conferences in the field of ECCM. In 2019 an ECCM graduate school will be introduced to further boost an ECCM community across the Netherlands.
