Welcome to the
BASF Advanced Research Initiative
The BASF Advanced Research Initiative at Harvard University is an innovative model for university-industry collaboration, closely partnering researchers at BASF and Harvard to expand new frontiers of scientific discovery.
What makes the BASF Advanced Research Initiative unique is that in addition to funding research, the BASF team regularly visits the Harvard campus to work together with academic researchers. This provides students with an unparalleled opportunity to benefit from early exposure to industry. Harvard faculty retain the freedom to distribute and publish findings from the Initiative, while BASF has the opportunity to further develop discoveries for possible commercialization.
