BASF SE has set up a research initiative called Joint Research Network on Advanced Materials and Systems (JONAS) in
collaboration with the universities of Strasbourg, France; Freiburg, Germany, and ETH Zurich, Switzerland. The aim is to work jointly to strengthen the scientific base and understanding of modern materials and systems and expand the international research network. "Functional materials with new combinations of properties offer vast innovative potential. To realise that potential, we need both wide-ranging expertise and a creative interdisciplinary network in order to develop new impulses and ideas and joint exploration of new themes. That is precisely what we hope to achieve through close cooperation with these top universities,” said Dr. Christian Fischer, head of Polymer Research at BASF.
The spectrum of future research themes is broad. One area is multi-materials, which are made up of a variety of
components and in that way present new and improved performance profiles. Other examples of future research topics are biobased and biodegradable polymers."We take a close look at the strategies nature has developed to achieve certain effects, try to learn from those examples and put them to work in innovative technologies,” said Dr. Bernd Bruchmann, BASF Vice President in Polymer Research and head of JONAS.
