The Advanced Technologies for Industry (ATI) Centers were created by the European Commission to help SMEs position themselves in the market with innovative concepts. These centers are both public and private organizations that conduct applied research and near-market innovation. They provide SMEs with access to technology expertise and facilities for validation, laboratory testing, prototype development and testing, pilot production and demonstration, pilot lines, pre-series, product validation and certification, among other services. 1

Our Institute of Polymer Processing is now one of these Technology Centers. Our scientists deal with all kinds of processes for processing thermoplastic polymers, both on the material and on the production side. The chair offers SMEs, for example, support in formulating innovative, tailor-made compounds as well as in producing small samples up to semi-industrial scale.
