Brightlands Polymer Days 2021
Brightlands Polymer Days 2021 is a scientific conference in the field of polymer science and technology. It is a collaboration and organised by the Belgian Polymer Group, KNCV Macromolecular Division, PTN, the former Dutch Polymer Days and Brightlands Rolduc Polymer Conference. These partners have joined forces to start a new scientific conference where academia, from student to Nobel Prize winner, and industry can meet.
The congress theme is 'Innovative Polymer Materials for a Sustainable Future'. Abstracts can be submitted (as from now) within the following topics: mobility - energy - health - circularity.
For more detailed information: please visit the conference website polymerdays.brightlands.com.
Furthermore, the PTN Medema Lecture award will be granted to Prof. Dr. Brigitte Voit (Leipniz IPF Dresden).
Dutch Polymer Days 2020
Because of Covid-19 the Dutch Polymer Days 2020 were cancelled.
Dutch Polymer Days 2019
Since 2000, the Dutch Polymer community assembles in Lunteren (NL) for the so-called "Dutch Polymer Days" (DPD), a two-day annual conference conference in different areas of polymers: Chemistry, Physics, Technology, Processing, BioMaterials & BioProcesses.
Primary objective of DPD is to encourage young researchers (PhD- & PDEng-students and post doctoral fellows) to present their work in plenary lectures, workshops lectures and a poster session, to a wide audience.
Moreover, some world-class high profile speakers are invited, among which the PTN Medema Lecture award winner. This award is given to world-leading polymer scientists with a strong connection to the Dutch polymer science community.
