Leoben Conference on Polymer Engineering and Science

For many years now, the Leoben Conference on Polymer Engineering and Science (LKK) has been a meeting place for graduates, partners and interested groups from the entire plastics community as well as students and pupils.

The LKK is organised annually jointly by the Department for Polymer Engineering and Science and the Polymer Competence Center Leoben. Each year, a different chair of the department takes the lead in organising the colloquium. Accordingly, the focus also changes annually and thus covers a special thematic range - from the chemistry of polymers to construction and component design to processing and materials testing.

An important component of the colloquium since 2019 is the POLYMER SCIENCE SCHOOL AWARD. The award is intended to recognise forward-looking ideas and innovative projects by pupils.
