Université de Strasbourg (ECPM)
A recent partnership between the Ecole européenne de chimie, polymères et matériaux of the Strasbourg University (ECPM) and Dow was launched at the beginning of 2014.
The main goal is to allows Dow to recruit the best talents among the young trilingual graduated engineers of Alsace, a strategic region for Dow, where we have more than 8 production and R&D sites within a range of only 300 kilometers.
This partnership has produced several initiatives, such as Dow experts giving courses, conferences or other kinds of events. We also try to encourage exchange moments with students, on our sites or in classrooms.
The partnership is likely to develop even more by involving Dow in the elaboration of the ECPM’s educational project, but also in the research projects within the school labs.
We share common characteristics with our new partner, especially regarding cultural open-mindedness, incorporating foreign languages, providing a high level of laboratory training and the capacity of working within a network. The excellent quality of teachers and courses supports us in this partnership.
Ramon Melgarejo, President of Dow France, says he is “happy to see the ECPM in Strasbourg and Dow commit themselves in a partnership. We share the same vision of excellence. This partnership combines an excellent quality education with an industrial expertise which is excellent as well. Through their partnership, education and our industry can create together solutions to meet the scientific challenges we face every day”.
While Albert Beretz, President of the University of Strasbourg, expands that “Thanks to this partnership, the chemistry of Strasbourg, which has been already recognized internationally for its research, will be rewarded for delivering a professional education at very high level”.
