BASF – We create chemistry

People everywhere expect beautifully designed, comfortable and safe cars at a reasonable price. At the same time, the limited availability of fossil fuels and climate change call for more efficent cars and lower emissions. To meet these requirements, the automotive industry needs continuously innovations. Modern vehicles are already heavily based on chemical products and solutions. BASF develops and supplies functional materials and solutions that enable vehicles to be built more efficently and with a lower environmental impact. But chemistry is set to play an even greater role in the future as it contributes significantly to solving the mobility challenges ahead. The automotive industry is one of BASF's key customer industries. The portfolio for the automotive industry includes catalysts, coatings, plastics, automotive fluids and battery materials. These products are broadly used in major parts or components of a car: from powertrain and chassis to interior and exterior components, right down to electronics and electrics. With such an extensive range of products, BASF is the world's leading chemical supplier to the automotive industry. The company cooperates closely with customers worldwide through its network across the regions.

For BASF, scientific research and the consequently arising innovative strength are essential. This is why we commit ourselves in areas of science and technical engineering. We are focused on science education realizing that today's students will be the thinkers, innovators, discoverers and leaders of the future. BASF provides grants in support of innovative science programs in the communities where we do business. Here we sponsor outstanding projects and events which are particularly meaningful for science and society and futher award prices for exceptional scientific performance. We consider "Formula Student Germany" as a great opportunity to get in contact with ambitious and well-educated young people. 

We are already looking forward to meeting you and wish all teams good luck and endurance for this extraordinary competition! Have a great time!
