The First International Conference on “Green” Polymer Materials 2020

It is our pleasure to invite you to join the 1st International Conference on "Green" Polymer Materials 2020 that will take place exclusively online at:

"Green" polymers are a strongly rising field due to, on the one hand, the perceived future decrease of oil resources, and their consequent increasing scarcity and cost. Correspondingly, the public, governments, and industry are well aware of the fact that materials from biogenic resources are the valid alternative to secure the substitution supply preferably at the same or lower cost or even at a higher cost if no feasible alternatives exist. Based on this background, "green" polymer research is vibrantly alive today and gaining growing importance as a research area. This huge interest creates an urgent need for a place enabling the exchange of the latest cutting-edge research in the innumerable areas that are now of interest.

The 1st International Conference on "Green" Polymer Materials 2020 seeks to fulfill this need by offering a completely digital (online) scientific conference. It will allow participants to share their latest research results and receive near-instantaneous feedback from researchers throughout the world through online question-and-answer sessions and discussion groups. In this way, the conference will serve as a platform for advancing the state-of-the-art of ‘green’ polymers.

In order to stimulate scientifically profound discussions among the scientists in the field, both from academy as well as from industry, the conference will be scheduled as a three-week event taking place on 5–25 November 2020. There is no cost to participate.
