What we believe in
- We believe that a huge number of innovations in chemicals and materials have never
seen the day and are sleeping in labs because they failed to meet the right customers
or the adequate development partners.
- We believe that it is not the lack of R&D funds nor the lack of scientific expertise
that limit innovation the most, but the limited market connects of technology
holders and the absence of efficient connection processes between technology
holders and consumer goods manufacturers.
- We believe that we are all responsible for innovation: as customers to express
our needs as clearly as possible, and as technology holders to listen carefully
to what the end-markets need.
- We are convinced that innovation in chemicals comes today from a better understanding
of the end-market needs by people in charge of innovation on the suppliers'
- We believe that Innovation comes from good R&D but also superior marketing.
- We believe that on-line networks are of incredible power, when coupled with
solid marketing and R&D skills, to unlock the innovation potential of chemical
& materials technologies.
