On May 20, BASF and Harbin Institute of Technology signed a cooperation agreement to jointly develop advanced materials for sustainable infrastructure applications. According to the agreement, the research teams of BASF and Harbin Institute of Technology will jointly test new applications based on BASF's advanced materials to reduce emissions in the construction industry and reduce energy costs.
Liu Hong, vice president of Harbin Institute of Technology, said that HIT hopes to use its expertise in advanced materials and engineering research to promote this promising partnership. By working hand in hand with BASF and strengthening integrated innovation in key industries, we will strongly support China's future economic development through sustainable infrastructure solutions.
Dr. Lou Jianfeng, President of BASF's Global Advanced Materials and Systems R & D Platform, said that as an innovation-oriented company, BASF is committed to developing a new generation of applications for sustainable infrastructure in China. Relying on BASF's expertise in advanced materials and Harbin Institute of Technology's strong strength in infrastructure, this win-win cooperation will make innovative contributions to China's sustainable development in the future.
This contract is the latest cooperation project of BASF to expand its local research network through cooperation with well-known universities in China. BASF is using its Asia Open Research Network (NAO) platform to work closely with top universities and research institutions in the Asia-Pacific region. Since the platform was created in March 2014, BASF and its partners have completed more than 43 joint research projects.
Currently, the research fields covered by the NAO project include new monomers and polymers and their applications, surfaces and interfaces, coatings, catalysis, battery materials, chemical engineering processes, pesticides, digitalization, and intelligent production.
