Synopsis

The third FPM series will bring together leaders in polymers and polymeric materials from around the world to describe their most recent and cutting edge discoveries.

The aim of the conference is to capture the multidisciplinary nature of polymer chemistry with topics spanning "basic synthesis and methodology" to "nanoscale and bioinspired materials".

Target Audience

This conference will appeal to academics, students, postdoctoral research associates, industrial scientists and leaders, governmental researchers and those currently involved in the development of polymeric material applications to address the most critical needs in areas such as medicine, energy and sustainability.
