DuPont to Co-Locate Research Activities at the RWTH Aachen University

DuPont Performance Materials (DPM)has announced that it will extend its existing partnership with the Aachen Centre for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) to a “Premium Partnership” and for the first time ever will co-locate its research activities on the RWTH Aachen University campus.

The decision to co-locate at AZL is part of DuPont’s ongoing commitment to collaborative research with academic institutions and industry partners with a view to matching market needs with commercially viable innovation. DuPont is a founding partner of AZL, which was launched in 2012 to meet the increasing demand for mass production of lightweight, highly stable, chemically resistant components, mainly used for transportation-related applications. Co-locating on the RWTH Aachen University campus will give DuPont Performance Materials better access to the work of AZL research partners such as the world renowned Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV). It will also foster further collaboration and ideas generation with other companies based on site.

“We are extremely excited that our excellent long-term partnership with DuPont is taking a step up to a new level. We believe that the proximity will be a rich source of inspiration for all parties involved and that DuPont can take better advantage of AZL’s and IKV´s research excellence and its scientific and industrial network to grow its business,” says University Professor Dr. Ing Christian Hopmann, Head of the Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) and Founding Professor of the AZL.

“Co-locating our activities in Aachen is a first ever in Europe for DPM and represents a paradigm shift in how we do research and new business development,” comments Ernst Poppe, Business Development Manager DuPont Performance Materials.
