In order to intensify the already existing cooperation between RWTH Aachen University and the French Saint-Gobain Group and to bundle synergies, a cooperation partnership with Saint-Gobain has been in place since February 2020.
Saint-Gobain is a globally active group of companies with headquarters in Paris and more than 170,000 employees in 68 countries. The company develops, produces and distributes materials that are used in buildings, transportation, infrastructure and numerous industrial applications. They provide comfort, performance and safety while taking into account the requirements of sustainable construction, efficient use of resources and climate change.
In the R&D area, the company aims to solve technical challenges together with the scientific expertise of the RWTH. In addition, start-ups from the RWTH's environment are to be brought together with Saint-Gobain. Last but not least, Saint-Gobain is focusing on open innovation formats with talents from the RWTH as well as on strengthening its own brand name.
