Material supplier Royal DSM has opened a new centre for research into and development of high-performance materials on the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen, the Netherlands.

 

The completion of DSM’s largest materials centre worldwide is part of the 100 million euro investment in innovation in the Netherlands that DSM announced in May 2012. The centre employs over 400 workers.

 

“The materials centre is an important base for DSM’s Materials Sciences research and marketing activities,” Netherlands-based DSM said in a statement. “Furthermore it will be the most important research centre worldwide for DSM Engineering Plastics. Being located on the Brightlands Chemelot Campus offers opportunities for open innovation owing to the proximity of other start-up and established companies as well as research and education institutes.”
