MSE alumna Dr. Svetlana Dimovski (Ph. D. 2006; advisor: Yury Gogotsi) was interviewed for an article about "open innovation" (OI) that was featured in the October 2012 issue of Specialty Chemicals Magazine.
The article discusses how many major chemical manufacturers are creating or enhancing formalized infrastructures that encourage OI between private industry, academia, government agencies, and professional groups in order to speed the development and utilization of specialty chemicals. Dimovski, who serves as Manager of Open Innovation and Science Relations for BASF North America, is quoted describing how process transparency and agility are critical components of their efforts to build outside collaborative efforts.
