Eighty years ago, people in Geleen embarked on a great journey of materials science and innovation. A unique ecosystem was established, which is known today as Brightlands Chemelot Campus. DSM started the journey in 1940 with the foundation of a Central Laboratory, and today, the campus has grown into a breeding ground for different organizations. The state-of-the-art innovations brought to life at the campus are life-changing and have an impact that goes way beyond Geleen.

In our online stories and during the events, you can discover our historic, current and future activities in material research and innovation, so you can celebrate their impact on society with us.

The community at Brightlands Chemelot Campus welcomes you
