TU Delft is a preferred university for DOW, and both DOW and TU Delft want to substantially expand their relationship. On April 7, 2011 DOW and TU Delft are organizing a ‘Technical Day’ in order to develop new collaborative research projects. On April 6 you are most welcome to attend an informal dinner to get acquinted beforehand.

DOW's strategy has been changed considerably since the acquisition in 2009 of Rohm and Haas ( a specialty and advanced materials producer http://www.rohmhaas.com/history/) . DOW used to be a driven by excellence in manufacturing (basic) chemicals, now the focus has been shifting towards advanced materials and also from supplying the materials only, to supplying products with that materials (a movement higher up in the value chain). Also all kind of new interesting fields are emerging, e.g. in construction and architecture and in wind energy or automotive applications.

The event will take place in the Aula, the Senate room and in the foyer (for posters, coffee, networking). The dinner on the evening before, will be at restaurant Van der Dussen. See Directions for maps.

If you think a poster from your group could be of interest to DOW, please bring it to the foyer (and inform us beforehand), even if you cannot personally attend. We have provided ample time for attendants to look at posters and to network. Below is extra info about the posters.

Please pass on this invitation to your colleagues (academic staff, PhD’s)

I hope to meet you on this Technical Day and give you best regards, also on behalf of Mark van Loosdrecht and Michiel Makkee (TU) and Frederic Bodino (DOW),
