“Innovation is uniqueness”

Innovation to me means finding unique solutions to today’s challenges.

As a Dow Fellow with more than 20 years of experience in the industry, I believe that in order to continuously innovate you have to inspire yourself first. On a day to day basis the technical aspect of what we do is really interesting but there is always something new to discover, if you are willing to think outside the box.

With this mind-set you can inspire your team and others around you. This is how you create value for your customers, your company, and society.

Today’s biggest challenge is finding more sustainable solutions requiring multifunctional performance and products, and this is also a huge opportunity for the whole value chain – another reason to be inspired!
