Dr. Patrick MAESTROPatrick MAESTRO

Patrick Maestro was awarded a PhD degree in solid-state physic and chemistry from the University of Bordeaux in 1981. He then started his career within Rhône-Poulenc, on several positions as a researcher on the physics and chemistry of inorganic compounds, particularly rare earths, and their applications in luminescent materials, pigments, magnetic materials and catalysis.

P. Maestro was named a Fellow Scientist of Rhône-Poulenc in 1994, then a member of the Scientific Council of the company, which later became Rhodia. He was named Scientific Director of Rhodia in 2004. Then he put in place long-term scientific orientations for the group, in major domains such as physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, materials science, polymers and renewable chemistry.

Since 2013, he is Scientific Director, Research and Innovation, at Solvay.

He has put in place several collaborations with the academic world, particularly with 4 joint teams with French CNRS and universities.

He holds 12 Patents, 60 Publications, 20 invited talks at International Conferences.
