Innovate together for sustainability
We cannot challenge the conventional alone. Our ability to establish strong, dedicated collaboration networks with key customers, suppliers, brand owners, start-ups and universities has been an innovation success factor for many years. A strong external research portfolio, including bi- and multilateral collaborations with leading scientists in the world, is a tool to effectively generate state of the art know-how. We continuously scout for new sustainable materials and enabling new technologies.
Curiosity and openness to other people’s ideas are crucial in finding synergies and creating joint development projects with converters, brand owners and other actors. Broad collaborative projects are invaluable in laying the foundation for more radical research result.
Here are examples of projects that we are driving right now.
