DSM Innovation Center
The DSM Innovation Center has two main functions. In the first place, it serves as a center of excellence to accelerate the innovation power and speed of our core businesses. In this role it also focuses on adjacent technologies for growth through its Corporate Research Program, which is steered by the Chief Technology Officer through the DSM Science & Technology Department, as well as through the DSM Venturing & Licensing activities. In its second function, the Innovation Center has a business development role, focusing on areas outside the current scope of DSM’s business groups. It identifies and invests in new and innovative growth options, initially through the DSM Business Incubator. Moreover, the Innovation Center is responsible for developing and extracting value from the company’s Emerging Business Areas (EBAs): DSM biomedical, DSM Bio-based Products & Services and DSM Advanced Solar.
