New issue of Henkel's research magazine
"in view of tomorrow"

The work conducted by Henkel's scientists and engineers today establishes the foundations for tomorrow's business success. In the latest issue of its research magazine "in view of tomorrow 2005," Henkel reports on selected examples of its current work in Research & Development and Technology. The new issue is available in German and in English.
"Henkel's strength lies in our ability to use our knowledge of the world's markets to identify the needs of our customers and of consumers, then to use these insights to shape our research and development strategy," says Dr. Wolfgang Gawrisch, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Research/Technology of Henkel KGaA. "The people behind our innovations are our passionate and dedicated scientists. Henkel offers them an outstanding research environment, so that their excellent ideas can be turned into attractive products and commercial success."

The topics selected for the 76-page magazine range from Nanit®active, a nanotechnological active ingredient for the treatment of sensitive teeth, to examples from biotechnology, to current technological developments paving the way to the digital factory. These projects demonstrate the breadth of the innovation portfolio with which Henkel aims to answer future trends.

The research and development projects presented all have one thing in common. They show how Henkel, as a member of a global and interdisciplinary research network, collaborates closely with experts from the scientific community and industrial enterprises, and successfully combines its own expertise with that of its partners to create tomorrow's products.
