13:00 – 14:00 Stage 1 PANEL Q&A SESSION “PRODUCT REALISATION & COMMERCIALISATION” Hosted by OCCA: The Oil & Colour Chemists’ Association Scientists can take a pragmatic and methodical approach to development projects, and sometimes serendipity helps us, or we just find interesting new raw materials that can be used to create novel surface coatings. Most developments are customer/ demand led, others are proactive/blue sky, or reactionary due to regulatory pressures, but how do we get our good ideas to market? A panel of four people involved with various aspects of the coatings industry and directly involved with new product development will give a brief overview of their perspective on this wide ranging subject.
