About the challenge

Background information

Innovation is a key driver of organic growth. In order to fuel innovation we need to trigger, find and develop new great ideas that can help grow our business. We are looking for partners to help us innovate across our business, to make our business more sustainable and enable organic growth. We are looking for ways to improve our chemistry, our products and applications and our process technologies. 

Where you fit in
