Aerospace industry leader, DuPont Transportation & Industrial
Ed Paxton graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in physics and now works as a market leader in the aerospace industry. In this role, he collaborates with DuPont’s customers to develop new polymer components for aircraft and aero-engines. Among other things, he is interested in how the exceptionally high standards of aviation safety are achieved and how they can be applied to other aspects of life.
Aerospace customers turn to us for innovative solutions that help them solve specific challenges like weight reduction, improved durability and reliability, and manufacturing efficiencies. Backed by decades of experience and an impressive team of skilled engineers and scientists, we are always ready to answer the call.
Transformation begins with the spark of something new.
In 2018, TED and DuPont began a partnership to do just that: TRANSFORM. As the world and our interactions grow more complex, so do our challenges. To solve for modern problems, we decided to pursue a new framework for innovation itself, one that considers all perspectives and outcomes in the calculus. This inaugural TED@DuPont event signifies a monumental step to unlock the institutional knowledge within the organization and showcase the New DuPont. Taking place in September 2019, at The Fillmore in Philadelphia, the day’s topics ranged from science, technology, and beyond. Photo: Ryan Lash / TED
