Evonik opened its first research hub for additive manufacturing in Singapore


Growing through innovation

Evonik opened its first Asia Research Hub for resource efficiency topics in Singapore, internationalizing its research into the areas of functional surfaces and additive manufacturing. Furthermore, the new R&D hub will be the home for Evonik’s project house tissue engineering, which is under the leadership of Creavis, the strategic innovation unit of Evonik. Overall the new hub in Singapore showcases Evonik’s strategic decision to globalize its research and development activities.

As part of its development blueprint for R&D excellence, the research hub constitutes an agile team of scientists and researchers from domain specialties working in an environment that promotes creativity and collaboration while generating sustainable business growth. 

Located in Biopolis, the home for international and groundbreaking research in Singapore, the hub offers national and international professionals and graduates – spanning from engineers to scientists – a creative environment for innovative ideas in a highly interactive workplace. Talent from all over the world will be brought together to carry out pioneering R&D by integrating scientific and technological capabilities in a collaborative lab concept. 

The development of the Asia Research Hub is also supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB).

With the research hub, Evonik is expanding its collaboration with public and private research institutions and organizations. Evonik has formed a partnership with Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University to develop novel technologies in additive manufacturing for industrial application.
