Headquarters, Florham Park, NJ - innovation center

Our planet is changing, and the pace of change is fast. The world's population is growing by 80 million people every year. If nothing changes, by 2050 we will need the resources of almost three times of our planet to meet the demands of the population.

At BASF we pursue bold ideas, and partnerships play an important role. We believe that we are all stakeholders of our future. Sustainability of our society, our resources and our planet is everyone’s job. Open Innovation at BASF Corporation is a way of connecting and aligning our creativity together with stakeholders like you to make the world a better place to be for everyone. Please join us in bringing this vision to life. We look forward to hearing from you.
-Dr. Michael Pcolinski, Vice President, Innovation & Technology North America
