    Solvay Why a Research Center in China ?

    Chinas dynamic market with 1.3 Billion people

    Strong growth : GDP ~ 7% /year ( New normal)

    Environmental challenges calls for solutions ! - Complex by nature - Requires multi-partner approach

    Solvays Business entities need R&D support - for the development of longer term solutions - for eco-efficient projects

    Huge talent pool in China. People are key to success

    Choose a good Location. Shanghai is one of them ! - Very good infra-structure, Solvay site not too far from Shanghais city center (about 1 hour) - Strong university landscape (ECUST, ECNU, Fudan) - Long presence of Solvay in China and Shanghai (30 years) - Proximity to our customers and production units

    IP: Secure Research results (PCT patent filing), then publish in academic journals ! - Requires good management of contracts up-front. E2P2: 6 partner agreement. - Early and constant involvement of Intellectual Assets experts for fair share of IP.

    Building trust among partners is essential ! - Solvay experience : To build up the E2P2 lab, our established partner ENS Lyon initiated contacts

    Fundings can be a good mean to achieve financial leverage - Consider different sources. From partners, regional, foreign programs,.

    HR : People/Access to talents is paramount for success. - Build an attractive working environment for young talents (projects, career perspective,..)

    - Our international team and green break-through subjects attracts talents !

    Lessons learned and Challenges to be in China We need to adapt to the Chinese Environment
