The aim of the RPK programme is educating a new generation of scientists and engineers, who are able to master the ever-increasing complexity of modern polymeric materials in the complete ‘chain-of-knowledge’ from engineering and design to applied and fundamental science. This requires a multidisciplinary approach to polymer science and technology. For this reason, the Dutch national postgraduate research school Polymeer Technologie Nederland (Polymer Technology Netherlands) PTN set up the Register PolymeerKundige (Registered Polymer Scientist) or RPK programme in 1993. RPK is a modular post-graduate educational programme focused on the topic of polymers and offers four modules. Please note, that all RPK trainings will take place on location and not online.
