Scientific Relations

We cooperate with research institutes, universities and other industrial companies so that the latest findings in chemistry, biology and physics can rapidly be transported into our company, and to foster science and education.

Through strategic partnerships we are linked to leading universities in the USA, China, and Japan, and to Singapore’s state-run research agency (A*STAR). In 2016 Evonik extended its partnership with the Ruhr University in Bochum (Germany), where it is sponsoring a chair in organic chemistry for five years. Our support for our established partnership with the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany comprises a junior professorship, ten scholarships for doctoral candidates and joint projects. In addition, we are a preferred partner of Munich Technical University. We have been running a joint laboratory with Shanghai Jiao Tong University for several years.

The "Evonik Meets Science" forum is held regularly in Germany, China, Japan and the USA to strengthen networking with leading international research scientists. At these forums, our experts engage in discussion with leading scientists from a wide range of disciplines and institutions and present their joint research findings.
