Research Frontiers for the Chemical Industry: A Report on the Seventh Annual CHF-SCI Innovation Day
Now in its seventh year, the CHF-SCI Innovation Day and Warren G. Schlinger Symposium has grown into a well-established institution of the community of researchers in the chemical industry. Innovation Day seeks to expose its attendees to issues on the cutting edge of the innovation frontier. In this age of complexity and global interconnectedness it is no longer sufficient for industrial chemists to concern themselves only with technical matters. Being aware of the broader implications of their work and of the work being done in other organizations is increasingly critical for success. In 2010 breakout sessions discussed the following topics: Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering; Challenges for Water Resources; Chemistry of Energy Sources; Emerging Global Economies; and Organizational Strategies for Innovation.
