New lines of thought and previously undreamed of opportunities
“Active collaboration between the different disciplines is opening up new lines of thought and creating previously undreamed of opportunities for new approaches – and for innovative products,” says Dr. Wolfgang Gawrisch, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Research/Technology of Henkel KGaA. “Successful research and development depends entirely on the people behind the inventions. At Henkel, scientists and engineers find an open research environment in which they can turn their ideas into innovative brands and technologies, thereby making an essential contribution to Henkel’s future.”
The 66-page magazine provides insights into the broad spectrum of Henkel’s research and development portfolio. The topics selected range from biotechnology for laundry detergents and household cleaners to hair research for cosmetic products, and from complex polymer structures for tailor-made adhesives to innovative technologies that help to raise standards in occupational health and safety and environmental protection.
All of the research and development projects described have one thing in common. They illustrate how Henkel works closely with experts from science and industry as part of an international and interdisciplinary knowledge community, successfully networking its own expertise with external know-how to create tomorrow’s products.
