The Polymer Processing and Engineering Committee aims to:

  • Provide a timely forum for presentation & discussion of
    key developments in engineering excellence in polymer processing;
  • Cover leading edge developments in polymer processing technology,
    in-process measurements and process flow modelling, and control;
  • Provide a technical focus for the processing and technology

Knowledge Transfer in the UK

The Polymer Group, part of the Materials Community of the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), is funded by the Innovate UK to put companies or individuals with ideas, into contact with research providers (universities, colleges and institutes), to direct them to sources of information and to providers of research grants. The Polymer Group has a team of specialists who can help you get started on these collaborations. They have collective expertise in plastics, rubbers, processing and applications as well as extensive knowledge of how to put collaborative projects together.
This is the entry point for information and opportunities to meet like-minded people in the polymer community who have something in common – a desire to forge partnerships that will help them solve problems and make progress.
