Mr. Vincent Magnotta, Manager of Corporate Technology Transfer at Air Products & Chemicals, gave a Corporate Needs talk at this year’s TechConnect Summit, which took place June 3-5 at the Hynes Convention Center, Boston, MA. This was Mr. Magnotta’s second year presenting the technology needs and investment areas of interest for the global company.

Air Products has an open innovation policy, and he told attendees at TechConnect, “We (Air Products) are always looking for technology partnerships to get to market faster, better, and at lower cost. He advocated redefining the Open Innovation to include open internal communications and technology transfer -typical partnerships include licensing - in, sponsored research, and joint developments (with a company, university, institute, or the government).”

At the 2008 TechConnect Summit, Mr. Magnotta also described to attendees the company’s four growth platforms, which include: Electronic Materials, Energy, Performance Materials and Healthcare. He then went into further detail about the specific technology needs of Air Products in each of their identified growth platforms. Mr. Magnotta continues to search for external partners who match his company’s growth platform needs. He welcomes you to present your offerings.
