Materials and Polymer Engineering

The materials and polymer engineering research area focuses on the synthesis and characterisation of novel polymeric materials and composites through the incorporation of organic and inorganic materials. The purpose is to tailor material performance towards specific applications and production technologies. Polymers are omnipresent in our society and utilised in textiles, household items, sports equipment, food ingredients, more specialised biomedical devices and components for aerospace, boats and wind turbines. The research seeks new approaches improving sustainability in a circular economy perspective.
