BASF SE inaugurated new global Research & Development Centre Thane Navi Mumbai, India

MUMBAI, INDIA/LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF SE inaugurated a new global Research and Development (R&D) Centre at its Thane site in Navi Mumbai, India, focusing on organic synthesis, advanced process and formulation research, discovery chemistry for modern agricultural solutions, and molecular modelling. With an initial investment of €2 million, this new facility has been set up by BASF under its group Company, BASF Chemicals India Pvt Ltd. The new R&D facilities will accommodate more than 60 scientists in the first phase.

“With our R&D Centre in Navi Mumbai we have taken a significant step closer to BASF’s globalization goal in R&D. By 2020, we plan to conduct 50 per cent of our research activities outside of Europe - one quarter in Asia Pacific. By establishing a global research presence in Mumbai, we will be able to work directly with a wide range of scientific talents in India and take steps towards our strategic goal to innovate from Asia Pacific, for Asia Pacific and the world. We are also currently evaluating further investment options into R&D in Asia Pacific, including India,” said Dr Harald Lauke, President, Biological & Effect Systems Research, BASF.
