About this Session

Panel Q&A session on “Product Realisation & Commercialisation”

Scientists can take a pragmatic and methodical approach to development projects, and sometimes serendipity helps us, or we just find interesting new raw materials that can be used to create novel surface coatings. Most developments are customer/ demand led, others are proactive/blue sky, or reactionary due to regulatory pressures, but how do we get our good ideas to market?

Panel Session: A representative panel of people involved with various aspects of the coatings industry and directly involved with new product development will give a brief overview of their perspective on this wide ranging subject.
Followed by questions to the panel from the floor, exploring the subjects raised.

Host : Graham Armstrong – OCCA President (Sales and Technology Mentor, Indestructible Paint Limited)
