In today’s lightning-fast, complex, global business climate, successful chemical companies are practicing a new kind of science. The “science of collaboration,” which can accelerate results, drive change, and deliver solutions, is as important today as any traditional R&D taking place in company laboratories.
In this installment of the Joseph Priestley Society (JPS) lecture series, Pierre Brondeau will discuss how FMC Corporation and the industry are delivering results through unique and creative partnerships. Brondeau is president, CEO, and chairman of the board, FMC Corporation.
