Industrial Workshop of the European Centre for Nanostructured Polymers (ECNP)

Dresden, November 7, 2012

ECNP is coordinating research, dissemination and technology transfer activities of renowned research institutions in Europe. It offers multidisciplinary research service for industry, like market-oriented services, participation in and/or execution of R&D projects, technical service (incl. LCA), education and training activities, researcher mobility and infrastructure sharing. With the current running EU-project ECNP-GROWTH the center will be even more consolidated in the European Research Area (ERA). The centre’s competences and offers for cooperations in the field of functional nanostructured polymers and composites will be presented during the workshop. Representatives from industry are invited to join this event.

The workshop is connected with the 10th IPF colloquium “Functional Polymers and Composites for Applications in Organics Electronics and Sensorics”, which starts on 7th Nov, 1 pm until 8th Nov afternoon (www.ipfdd.de/coll10).

The European Centre for Nanostructured Polymers (ECNP S.c.a.r.l.) is a non-profit, limited liability, Consortium Company formed by the "Nanostructured and Functional Polymer-Based Materials and Nanocomposites (Nanofun-Poly)" European Network of Excellence (European Commission, Directorate General Research, 6th Framework Programme). The high scientific level of quotaholders and the large scientific/industrial network make ECNP a unique organization in the field of nanostructured polymers.
