Paella...Hmmm. It is part of my heritage and cannot be absent on our table when we celebrate with family, share with friends or make new friends. But what makes it so delicious? The diversity! There is not one single recipe, there are plenty of possibilities or variants simply by blending different ingredients. It is the mixture and the combination of different flavors that create unique taste experiences. Likewise, companies resemble a paella and people are the ingredients.
Paella... Hmmm. Es parte de mi cultura y herencia y por supuesto no puede estar ausente en nuestra mesa cuando celebramos con la familia, compartimos con amigos o hacemos nuevos amigos. ¿Pero qué la hace tan deliciosa? ¡La diversidad! No hay una sola receta, hay un montón de posibilidades o variantes simplemente mezclando diferentes ingredientes. Es la mezcla y la combinación de diferentes sabores los que crean experiencias unicas en nuestro paladar. Del mismo modo, las empresas son como una paella y la gente son los ingredientes.

As part of the new cooperation between Evonik and Femtec, I had the opportunity to organize a virtual welcome Event for the new scholarship holders. During the live event on thursday, February 11, the participants were able to get to know exciting and innovative Evonik projects and exchange with Evonik employees who also joined the Femtec program in the past. I enjoyed talking with them about their ideas and visions during this networking session. Thanks for the open exchange!
Hello world. Today is day one of my guest editor week at Evonik, and as promised, I would like to share some insights on my working tasks, my team, and my general working environment. The journey of my career has put me in the position as the department head in Evonik’s Research, Development, & Innovation (RDI) organization. In my department there are three pillars that are driving the future success of our High Performance Polymers business.
1) The group of Technology Leaders driving for sustainable and profitable project pipelines in our market segments.
2) The Technical Centers outside Marl fostering our position globally and incorporating additional diversity in our RDI work.
3) Future Technologies & Application Concepts thinking beyond established paths shaping our long-term future.
Due to the breath of our four technology platforms (High Performance Polymers, Membranes, Additive Manufacturing, and Foams), we have the great opportunity to take an active part on innovations in several exciting markets. E.g. the on-going disruption in the automotive industry is part of our daily work in at least two of our platforms in close cooperation with Tier 1s and OEMs. If you are already following Evonik you have recognized how active we are in the fields of Membranes and Additive Manufacturing as well! As you can imagine, my team is full of quite, technical driven professionals, but that’s not the only key requirement to be part of the team. Thinking beyond the obvious, driving change and innovation, and excellent communication and collaboration are evident skills needed day by day in a global matrix environment. Does it sound like we face challenging tasks? Yes, we do! And that is one reason why it is so exciting to work at Evonik. What makes a job exciting to you?
