The 8th edition of the International Conferences on Green Chemistry and White Biotechnologies , will take place on 28 & 29 September 2022. It will be dedicated to “Digital Transformation: Innovation booster for Green Chemistry and White Biotechs”. They will be held at the Sart-Tilman University Campus, under the auspices of ULiège.

This presentation by Sowalfin will introduce you to the group’s funding and investment programmes dedicated to supporting SMEs in their digitalisation transformation, or helping them develop solutions (products, services, processes), based on IT solutions.

Emmanuel JOUANY is an Industrial Engineering Specialist from the INP engineering school in Toulouse, France.For 10 years within the steel industry sector, as process engineer on production lines and as Programme manager in R&D, Emmanuel has developed and implemented several solutions on production lines using IT solutions, such as AI for example.Since 2020 he has been working as Innovation Advisor within the Sowalfin Group, specialising in IT solutions.

About the Conferences…

The purpose of the conferences is to screen the digital technology used to boost activities in the fields of green chemistry and white biotechnology around the world, to share knowledge and encourage the creation of new R&D projects in the sector at regional and international scale.

The first day, on 28 September, will focus on Digital Transition while the second one, on 29 September, will focus on Artificial Intelligence. Both days will be animated by Tieneke Van Hooland, from by essenscia.
