STATUS OF GOALS FOR 2009/2010
Revise and reissue WACKER’s school experiment kit
Corporate entity: Groupwide
Implementation status: The goal was achieved. We launched a new experiment kit for schools called CHEM2DO in 2012. It gives students an opportunity to explore modern silicones and cyclodextrins.
ISOS XVII Science Convention and WACKER Silicone Award
In 2014, WACKER will partner with the Technical University of Berlin in organizing an international science convention. The 17th International Symposium on Silicon Chemistry (ISOS XVII) and the jointly organized 7th European Silicon Days in Berlin are expected to attract as many as 600 researchers from silicon and silicone chemistry. During the convention, WACKER will present the WACKER Silicone Award for outstanding achievements in this area of research for the 14th time.
In 2014, WACKER sites in Burghausen, Nünchritz, Freiberg and Cologne will participate in the national open house organized by the German chemical industry.
