Annual DUTCH POLYMER DAYS
Dutch Polymer Days
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.
The congress language is English.
Because of the Covid-19 Corona outbreak the Dutch Polymer Days 2020 were cancelled.
Due to the latest Covid-19 developments, the board of PTN has decided to postpone the Dutch Polymer Days until further notice.
If interested, we will keep you posted on future Dutch Polymer Days ; please let us know via the contact form .
We hope you all stay safe in these challenging times!
