Research and Development plays a critical role in the innovation process – it is an investment in technology and future capabilities which are transformed into new products and customer solutions.
Mike Higgins, UK R&D Chair, explains: “This year a multiproduct Global R&D Committee has been established and I am pleased to represent the UK. The format of this committee is that country representatives submit and present on project proposals for the committee to evaluate, shortlist and coordinate execution of the R&D process. The benefit of the Global Committee is that we are able to utilise the expertise and capabilities of the wider “ONE CEMEX” global community.
In order to capture UK projects we have formed a UK R&D Mirror Committee – the first meeting was held recently. The purpose of this group is to evaluate UK projects to feed into the Global Committee and/or manage development in the UK. Each product stream is represented at the UK Committee so if you have any Product Development ideas or suggestions, please feed into the team below and we will keep you updated on our activities.”
