Germany-based specialty chemicals company Evonik opens its first research hub for resource efficiency topics in Singapore, internationalizing its research into the areas of functional surfaces and additive manufacturing. The new R&D hub will also be the home for Evonik’s tissue engineering project house, which is under the leadership of Creavis, the strategic innovation unit of Evonik.
For Evonik, Singapore reportedly combines the best of two worlds: highly qualified researchers from leading science faculties and quick reaction times of local administration. Located in Biopolis, the home for international research in Singapore, the hub offers national and international professionals and graduates 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, according to Evonik.
With the research hub, Evonik is expanding its collaboration with public and private research institutions and organizations. Evonik has formed a partnership with Nanyang Technological University, Singapore to develop novel technologies in additive manufacturing for industrial application.
