Welcome to the Polymer Center Twente! Our mission is to create a sustainable future for polymers and plastics because a world without plastics is unimaginable. We believe that this is essential for addressing related societal challenges and working towards a world where plastics are produced and used responsibly and sustainably.
At the Polymer Center Twente, our team of polymer scientists collaborates at the forefront of polymer science and education. We're passionate about addressing some of the most pressing challenges facing the industry today, and we work with other organizations and industries to achieve our goals.
Join us in our mission to create a better future for generations to come, where polymers and plastics are part of a sustainable world. Sign up for our newsletter, follow us on social media, or attend one of our events to learn more about our work and how you can get involved. Together, we can make it happen.
Our research is focused on six critical areas where polymer science can make a significant contribution: membranes, composites, coatings, biomaterials, elastomers, and thermoplastics. From developing new biomaterials for medical applications to creating more sustainable coatings for industrial use, we're committed to making a positive impact with our expertise in polymer science.
To learn more about each of these themes, we've provided a separate section that further explains our research in each area. We invite you to explore these sections and discover the exciting work we're doing at the Polymer Center Twente.
