Enabling Innovation through Chemistry



The future of  the chemical, material, agriscience and industrial biology industries is in innovative and sustainable technologies.  DESCA programs support future prosperity by leading the path to innovative and sustainable solutions in these industries.

Lead in Promoting Sustainable Innovation

Since 2010, DESCA has played a lead role in enabling sustainable innovation among key stakeholders in the public and private sectors.  Working with thought leaders in industry, government, and academia, we help link resources in ways that can both optimize the funding essential for R&D and translate the benefits of new and sustainable discoveries into commercial opportunities. 

Create Collaborative Partnerships Among Innovators

 DESCA's ecosystem of stakeholders dedicated to supporting entrepreneurship and the commercialization of new, sustainable technologies is large and growing.  It includes high growth enterprises, industry and academic partners, investors, professional service providers, government supporters.  Our events ensure that these stakeholders share insights, information and knowledge.
