We are delighted to invite you to Italy for POLY-CHAR 2020 [Venice]!

The aim of this conference is to bring together on one platform researchers  of any age, experience and background involved in the field of polymer science.

POLY-CHAR has always put a special emphasis on international collaboration, on the promotion of young scientists and on fostering a collegial research environment. The forum has the tradition of empowering young scientists, motivating them towards a future in polymer science. The 2020 POLY-CHAR will focus on the theme ‘Careers in Polymers’. Our main aim is promoting international collaborations and inspire a new generation of polymer scientists, able to catch the challenges of modern multidisciplinary science and technology. For this purpose, contributions from young scientists will be particularly appreciated, and awards will be given to acknowledge outstanding young talents.

The idea behind the conference is to provide an opportunity to bring together scientists and technologists from different areas of polymer science, in order to stimulate crossfertilisation in areas such as tissue engineering, food technology and packaging, drug delivery, energy generation and management, bioremediation, new materials, cultural heritage preservation, forensic science etc.

The conference venue for the 2020 edition lies in Veneto, a vibrant industrial area, which clusters a plethora of small and medium enterprises, culturally a bridge between southern, eastern and northern Europe.

As usual, the first day of the conference will be dedicated to a full day short course on Polymer Characterization aimed at students, young scientists and industry representatives.

Then, a diverse and exciting scientific program will start, where we hope everybody will find interesting and inspiring topics.

Doing science in a relaxed environment is more fun, so a rich social program will be organised, with a get together party, a gala dinner, and the opportunity to visit the beautiful area around the venue.

We look forward to welcoming you in the POLY-CHAR family, for a fruitful conference and for a memorable experience.
