Evonik, a specialty chemicals firm, has opened its first research hub for resource efficiency topics in Singapore, penetrating its research into the areas of functional surfaces and additive manufacturing. The new hub will be the home for Evonik’s project house tissue engineering, which is under the leadership of Creavis, Evonik’s strategic innovation unit.

The new hub in Singapore showcases Evonik’s strategic decision to expand the internationalisation of its research and development activities. For Evonik, Singapore combines the better of two worlds; highly qualified researchers from leading science faculties and quick reaction times of local administration.

Located in Biopolis, the home for international and ground-breaking research in Singapore, the hub offers national and international professionals and graduates, spanning from engineers to scientists – a creative environment for innovative ideas in a highly interactive workplace. Talent from all over the world will be brought together to carry out pioneering R&D by integrating scientific and technological capabilities in a collaborative lab concept.

With the research hub, Evonik is expanding its collaboration with public and private research institutions and organisations. Evonik has formed a partnership with Nanyang Technological University, Singapore to develop novel technologies in additive manufacturing for industrial application.

Harald Schwager, deputy chairman of the Board for Evonik Industries said, “We are actively pursuing new opportunities to boost our international R&D activities and the opening of this research hub is a significant contribution to these efforts. By focusing on promising research areas for the future, this hub will strengthen our position as a global leader in specialty chemicals.”

Claus Rettig, chairman of the Board of management, Evonik Resource Efficiency GmbH said, “This research hub is ideally located to drive innovation for our resource efficiency segment by developing forward-looking solutions and technologies for our clients in all global markets. With this new hub, we are taking advantage of a new approach to research: Enabling a creative environment for innovations and encouraging agile, flexible working.”

Peter Meinshausen, president of Evonik Asia Pacific South said, “The research hub will not only reinforce our competitive position, but will also play a critical role in pioneering impactful innovations to address industry needs and challenges in and beyond this region in the years ahead.” (GK)
