Doing a World of Good Through Research and Innovation
As the world’s population continues to expand, it is crucial that chemical engineers find ways to meet our planet’s grand challenges in areas such as energy, health and nutrition, water, environment and sustainability. AIChE Industry Technology Groups are vital to our ability to respond to new opportunities, develop new methodologies and support chemical engineering students and professionals in entrepreneurship, innovation and creativity.
In 2016, the AIChE Foundation put your gifts to work in the following ways:
- The AIChE Foundation provided seed funding to help support the $70MM Department of Energy (DOE) grant to launch the Rapid Advancement in Process Intensification Deployment (RAPID) Manufacturing Institute.
- AIChE honored 3M, BASF and Biogen for exemplary achievements in innovation at the AIChE gala, raising $350K to support chemical engineering students and professionals in entrepreneurship, innovation and creativity.
- The gala also celebrated the innovative work of biotechnology pioneer Robert S. Langer, who received the 2015 Hoover Medal.
Increasing the AIChE Endowment is critical to the campaign and provides a secure and reliable source of funding to support vital programs across all priorities, both today and in the future. The success of the Doing a World of Good campaign will require support of every member of the AIChE community, as well as corporate partners and others who are passionate about meeting society’s greatest challenges.
On the brink of new possibilities for chemical engineering, we invite you to join us in a leadership role to help shape the profession for the future.
Together we can do a world of good.
