Title: CHEMRAWN XVI - Innovation in the chemical industry: the
way from pure to applied chemistry
Chairman: M.J. Droescher
Remarks: in collaboration with COCI
Completion Date: 2005 - Project completed
A Forum will examine creativity and radical innovation in the chemical
industry with the focus on new directions.
Today's chemical industry is mature with little payoff from investing
in new products, significant process innovation, or fundamental, breakthrough
research. What can be done to change this situation?
The forum will have three sessions each with several talks, review of
previously submitted papers, and panel discussions:
- Enabling radical innovation
- software tools, knowledge management
- Getting the new ideas and adopting them
- market/technology intelligence
- computerized methodologies
- measuring chemical process efficiency
- capturing emerging technologies
- Doing breakthrough research
- new ways to collaborate in developing innovative products and processes
- smart scale-up techniques; instrumentation
- what life sciences, and the services sector can teach the chemical
industry about research
- increasing the odds for success
- Knocking down the barriers to innovation
- regulatory support/barriers- internal company practices- lack of
talent and resources- killing the good ideas- the game plan for the
innovative chemical company.
Papers submitted before the workshop and proceedings of the workshop
will be edited, posted on the IUPAC website for additional discussion,
and then printed in 2004.
This Forum took place in Ottawa, Canada, on August 9th, 2003.
