The Workshop intends to present ongoing as well as planned polymer research within the two geographic entities. This should set the scene for mutual exchange of knowledge and novel ideas that could develop into wider dissemination of research advances, industrial innovation and professional networking. Also, possible exchange of students and post-docs beyond existing alliances could be fostered. New collaborations will be favored, which could eventually help to envision international polymer research consortia.
Strong international consortia with solid industrial support seem presently necessary in order to obtain substantial funding, e.g. from EU.
The Workshop will consist of invited lectures primarily by young, yet established researchers who will review the state of the art and prospect for an emerging future in their selected fields of polymer science, engineering and application. The abstracts of the invitees will be up-loaded on the webpage upon reception; the workshop will in addition feature an oral communication as well as a poster session. Naturally, larger participation from the Italian and Nordic communities and the International community at large is very cordially welcome.
Those who wish to contribute an oral communication or a poster paper should send a one-page abstract to Helle Borch, firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline 28 July 2019. The abstracts will be up-loaded on the webpage after acceptance.
