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? #humanchemistry #innovation #diversity #development #buildingbridges #TheRealEvonik #research #Technology #German
