Each year IUPAC endorses a large number of independently organized conferences, symposiums and workshops that cover a wide range of specialized topics in chemistry. Endorsement by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country’s assurance that scientists from all countries may participate. The conference must be located in a country represented in IUPAC by a National Adhering Organization. See program details.

Polymers 2021: New Trends in Polymer Science: Health of the Planet, Health of the People

  • This event has passed.

The conference was initially planned to be held in June 2020 and has been rescheduled to the 17-19 May 2021 25-27 May 2022.

Today, polymeric materials face a new challenge: reconciling the technological progress and well-being of people with the preservation of the planet, from a circular economy perspective. The purpose of the meeting is to bring together scientists from academia and industry to present leading-edge research on the advancements in polymer science and technology in all its main aspects, with a particular emphasis on those aiming to preserve and improve the health of the planet and of people, as per title.
