Speaking at the DuPont Innovation Forum here, DuPont Senior Vice President and Chief Science & Technology Officer Douglas Muzyka underscored the importance of the role of DuPonts integrated science in solving some of the worlds greatest challenges. Muzykas remarks were made at the DuPont Thailand Innovation Center, where business partners, academic thought leaders and government officials met to celebrate the second anniversary of the centers opening.
Since opening in August 2011, interactions at the Thailand Center have generated more than 100 new ideas and projects and welcomed over 1,500 visitors from over 300 organizations. DuPonts Innovation Centers create value for our customers by connecting our integrated science to local market needs, said Muzyka. Todays Innovation Forum celebrates the second anniversary of the opening of our center in Thailand. It also recognizes the important progress that we have made through inclusive innovation to bring many new solutions to the marketplace.
Muzyka pointed to the collaboration between DuPont and the three local partners: L Solar 1 Co., Ltd; Smart Green Energy Co., Ltd; and Infinite Green Co., Ltd. The collaborations on solar farm projects in Prachin Buri Province, Chaiyaphum Province and Saraburi Province, respectively, are examples of using global science to provide local solutions.
The collaboration is a significant milestone for DuPont Thailand and lays a strong foundation to accelerate the use of solar energy in the country, said Somchai Laohverapanich, DuPont Thailand managing director. Our Innovation Center will work with other local partners to deliver photovoltaic rooftop solutions to serve commercial and residential buildings. The center also has enabled collaborations which bring solutions to our customers in other areas. In addition to solar energy, the innovation center has enabled collaborations in DuPont SentryGlas
