Ongoing Challenges


In temporary collaborations, BASF works on finding solutions for specific questions. Here you find the running campaigns. 

Open Collaboration

While the world’s population and the resulting demands continue to grow, the planet’s resources are limited. Chemistry is an enabler; it provides solutions for current and future societal needs. This is particularly true for our core topics such as Urban Living, Smart Energy, Food and Digitalization. To find the best solutions, we collaborate with excellent minds from start-ups, industry and academia. Join in and innovate with us.
