About the Dutch Polymer Days

Since 2000, the Dutch Polymer community assembles in Lunteren (NL) for the so-called “Dutch Polymer Days (DPD), a two-day conference once every two years in different areas of polymers: Chemistry, Physics, Technology, Processing, BioMaterials & Bioprocesses.

The primary objective of DPD is to encourage young researchers (PhD- & EngD-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. The congress language is English.

We are looking forward to meeting you @ DPD in 2023!
