Over its long history of more than 100 years the Dutch firm DSM grew from primarily coal mining and coke production to a diversified, international chemical company to become one of the leading Dutch multinationals. Industrial research played an important role in this transformation. However, there were also other ways to appropriate the technology that was necessary to manufacture products. This book tries to analye why and how DSM used this technology market and in which cases the company used its internal resources.

Arjan van Rooij is a historian and is currently working at the Eindhoven University of Technology.
