Technology management 

Our goal is to help develop the tools we need to meet our challenges. Innovation, invention and improvement in all phases and processes of industry will lead to higher levels of performance across all our global activities.

How can we meet the need for innovation? First, we are actively tapping into the enormous resource of creative energy that exists beyond our company. Through, we’re inviting the world’s original thinkers and experts to contribute to finding creative solutions to our challenges.
