Creavis is part of Corporate Innovation and its work centers on "disruptive innovations," which have the potential to significantly change technologies, industries and society. Creavis, therefore, opens up completely new growth fields for Evonik and develops new expertise for the entire Group. The unit is a creative motivator for Evonik and also promotes our reputation as a highly innovative company. It is no coincidence that so many creative researchers and developers find their way to us through Creavis. Internally, Creavis is organized into so called “Innovation Fields” and “Project Houses”. In those Innovation Fields Creavis develops long-term strategic research projects which are based on the Growth Fields of Evonik. Currently, Creavis is working on six such Innovation Fields:
In Creavis' project houses, experts from a variety of business lines work together on one topic area for a period of normally three years. The products and technologies developed in this period are typically marketed by a business line. Since 2000, Evonik has created eleven such project houses. Two are currently active: The Composites Project House in Marl, and the Medical Devices Project House in Birmingham, Alabama (USA). Creavis also opened a biotechnological research laboratory in Shanghai in 2013. All Creavis project houses are evaluated at an early stage in their development not only for their economic potential but their environmental and social aspects. A special evaluation method was developed in collaboration with the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment, Energy.
