Our worldwide cooperation partners are an integrated part of INEOS Styrolution’s global R&D network. Maintaining strategic partnerships with excellent universities and research institutes all over the world is vital to stay on top of current technological developments and to turn inventions into innovations. All our partners support our global research unit and our regional development network.

Most important for us is the direct exchange with our customers on R&D level to enable joint developments. With our customer centric R&D organization, we constantly develop new ideas and innovative concepts and turn them into solutions strictly along our customers’ needs. Many of our innovations started from a close cooperation between our own and our customers’ R&D specialists.

We organize workshops with major customers in our key industries, leading to a portfolio of prioritized R&D project initiatives. Often, this becomes the starting point for new products. Working together with scientists, customers and suppliers, supported by our global network of cooperation partners is our understanding of open innovation.
