Creating a sustainable future for polymers and plastics for the generations to come is of pivotal importance since a world without plastics is unimaginable.
- Exploit the available and broad combined complementary expertise in polymeric materials at UT to tackle current challenges in Polymer Science with a major focus on developing zero (or negative) emission life cycles and polymers for Circular Economy.
- Communicate the joined efforts of UT in state-of-the-art Polymer Science.
- Using existing infrastructure of two faculties, (at least) 14 research Groups.
- Aligned Education
- Affiliated to other UT initiatives, such as the Materials Lab or other Centers (e.g. Molecules, Membranes,…)
Addressing existing societal challenges to create a sustainable world. The scope of Polymer Center Twente allows the creation of a pivotal, competitive, and vibrant environment that must be capable of earning regional, national, and international recognition.
Initiated 1st of June 2021; 2 Faculties, 16 professors (plus teams) involved to date.
