The UNIQUE - The BASF Academic Partnership Program focuses on leading universities worldwide. Its aim is to develop lasting relationships, strengthen BASF's innovation portfolio and enable direct access to scientific expertise, new technologies and talented minds from various disciplines.

We collaborate with many individual research groups all over the world. UNIQUE - The BASF Academic Partnership Program, however,  takes collaboration one step further: One of our scientists is dedicated as academic relationship manager (APD) for current and future collaborations within his assigned university.

What is unique about UNIQUE?

  1. A dedicated Academic Partnership Developer (APD) is assigned to each university. It's his job to connect the university with BASF, and to represent BASF at the university.
    The APD is actively looking for new technologies of interest to BASF, and identifies opportunities and initializes new collaboration projects.
  2. In some cases a framework agreement between BASF and the university enables fast start of new projects. In other cases the APD will facilitate the contract between the legal departments of the university and BASF.
