MOSCOW, Nov. 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - DuPont announced today
the opening of its ninth Innovation Center around the world and the first in

and technology officer. "Connecting our customers in Russia to our scientists
around the world will help redefine existing products, open new market
segments, and increase our rate of innovation."

The Russian DuPont Innovation Center is a state-of-the-art space with distinct
areas for collaboration and innovation. The innovation space illustrates the
company's latest technology offerings, applications and industry trends. The
collaboration space is designed for holding meetings between company clients
and partners around the globe.

"Today, Russia is one of the world's fastest growing markets with great
potential for innovation," said Jiri Lang, Russia managing director. "Whether
a customer is looking to do exploratory projects or trying to come up with the
next competitive "game changer," our goal is to help our customers in Russia
take innovations from concept to commercial – and with speed," Lang added. "We
want to share our market insight and foresight with our customers here and
help them meet new demands for today's global marketplace."

Other Innovation Centers have been opened recently in Japan, Korea, Taiwan,
Thailand, India, Brazil, Mexico, and the United States. More are planned for
