BASF is one of the world's most innovative companies. Innovations are our wellspring and our driving force.
Our "We create chemistry" strategy is also geared towards innovation: we at BASF are continuously introducing solutions onto the market which significantly contribute to improving quality of life and conserving resources such as water and energy. For BASF, Innovation is the key to successfully standing out from the crowd in a challenging market environment.

Our innovative strength is based on our global team of highly qualified employees with various specializations. We pursue bold ideas. Partnerships and Open Innovation play an important role in these activities. In a highly diversified, global and international network, new ideas are generated and new impulses are given to research. This is why we involve external partners in our innovation processes and maintain numerous contacts and connections with science and business.

We pursue Open Innovation: together with other innovative organizations, we bundle different competences, develop best practices and work on sustainable products and solutions.

We create chemistry for a sustainable future.
