Annual Dutch Polymer Days

 

Brightlands Polymer Days 2021
November 7 - 9, 2021 (Koningshof Veldhoven)

 

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, registration and submittance of abstracts, please visit the conference website polymerdays.brightlands.com.
Please note submission deadline abstracts: June 1, 2021!

Furthermore, the PTN Medema Lecture award will be granted to Prof. Dr. Brigitte Voit (Leipniz IPF Dresden).

 

Dutch Polymer Days 2020

Because of the Covid-19 Corona outbreak 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.
