Conférence "Solvay: Une multinationale face à l'Histoire" (Bruxelles, 28/11/2013)

Conférence organisée par iCite, le Centre international de recherche en Innovation, Technologie et Entreprenariat de la Solvay Brussels School (Université Libre de Bruxelles).
 
Kenneth Bertrams (FNRS, Université Libre de Bruxelles), Nicolas Coupain (Solvay S.A.) et Ernst Homburg (University of Maastricht), co-auteurs de Solvay: History of a Multinational Firm (Cambridge University Press, 2013) y présenteront le résultat de cinq années de travail sur l'histoire de ce qui fut l'une des premières multinationales au monde, et le leader mondial de la chimie à la fin du 19ème siècle :
 
Ernest Solvay, philanthropist and organizer of the world-famous Solvay conferences on physics, discovered a profitable way of making soda ash in 1861. Together with a handful of associates, he laid the foundations of the Solvay company, which successfully branched out to other chemicals, plastics, and pharmaceuticals. Since its emergence in 1863, Solvay has maintained world leadership in the production of soda ash. This is the first scholarly book on the history of the Solvay company, which was one of the earliest chemical multinationals and today is among the world's twenty largest chemical companies. It is also one of the largest companies in the field to preserve its family character. The authors analyze the company's 150-year history (1863–2013) from economic, political, and social perspectives, showing the enormous impact geopolitical events had on the company and the recent consequences of global competition.
