      World-class innovation from China for the world

      As the inventor of polyurethane and polycarbonate, Covestro embraces a holistic approach to innovate.


      As one of Covestro's three regional innovation hubs together with Leverkusen and Pittsburg, the Polymer Research and Development Center (PRDC) in Shanghai is our Asia Pacific Innovation Center, providing unparalleled support to customers in the Asia Pacific region and to the world. The center also explores new business models and digitalization, ventures in e-commerce and fosters incubation of start-ups under the "Open Innovation Hub" concept.
      "At Covestro, innovation is more than R&D, materials and labs. It is in digitalization, in entirely new business models, and in ideation and co-creation spaces. We strive for a close and intense collaboration with local partners from all kind of industries with the goal to build a leading innovation ecosystem."

      Dr. Michael Schmidt, Head of Innovation, Asia Pacific
