The Center for Polymer Engineering and Science Leoben is an internationally recognized center for polymer research and can look back on more than 50 years of experience and innovation.

As a recognized partner of industry and business, great importance is placed on close cooperation with national and international companies. The research projects carried out jointly with industry partners (from small service projects to international EU projects) deal with the production, processing and application of polymers and explore their physical, chemical and technological properties. The aim is to open up new areas of application for plastics, select or develop a polymer best suited to a particular application, technologically optimize processing procedures and design components to suit the material.
